If you are interested in donating to the seed bank, we are always accepting! Please do not send hybrid seeds, as we focus on open-pollinated and heirloom veggies only.
When donating seeds, please provide as much information as possible, including:
- Species or common name, & variety
- Growth habits
- Historical information
- The seed source (your grow out, if the seeds were purchased, etc.)
- Date you saved/acquired the seed
- Any other information you find important about the seed
If you don’t have all that information, that’s fine! Give what info you have, and the crack-team of researchers (meaning: me) will start looking for the rest.
Donations are ideally in the 100-200 quantity range for storage. If you don’t have that much seed, that’s fine too! I’ve had as few as 3 seeds sent. We’ll keep smaller amounts in cool storage for grow-out within the next year or two.
Thank you for your interest in keeping the biodiversity of our plants alive!
