We’re on a Mission to Help People All Across The United States Grow Healthy, Organic Food.
Organic Gardening Addresses Food Security and Creates a Strong Bond with the Earth.
The Free Seed Project is for anyone who wants to try their hand at growing food for themselves and their community. Just click the link below and fill out the short form and in a few weeks a FREE garden starter seed kit will arrive, with seeds to grow 20-25 different foods.
Free Seed Project gardens will yield healthy greens like kale, arugula, and spinach, nourishing veggies like carrots and beets, and tasty herbs like mint, basil and oregano. We’ll send you about 10-20 of each seed, which gives you enough seed for 200 – 500 plants. Plus, we will send you a beneficial insect attractant mix which will support the bees and butterflies in your community, while providing you with beautiful sites and fragrant smells. That’s quite the garden, all from one envelope in the mail!
Don’t know much about gardening, but would like to start? This is your perfect opportunity to learn organic techniques; we’ve already posted some great information here, and throughout the growing season we will be posting more! This article has some great information for starting an organic garden
What we ask for in return
Send us photos! We’d love to share your story and inspire more people to grow their own food. We’d love photos of you with the seed pack in the space you are going to garden, a before and after photo of the garden, and any other photos you’d like! You can send them to [email protected].
Share your food with your community. Let’s create a culture of sharing our own home-grown food with each other. The most powerful thing to stand up against the big food corporations is a strong community of people who can produce their own food! Learn about Freestyle Gardening!
Save some seed. If you let 1 or 2 of each plants go to seed, then you can turn that one seed, into thousands! One kale plant can yield hundreds of seeds. We don’t provide enough seed for you to start a giant garden in the first year, but if you save seed you can increase the size of your garden each year, without spending any extra money or resources. And soon you could take on the Free Seed Project role, and give out free seeds to everyone in your community!

It truly is amazing what a handful of seeds can create; seeds, some soil and a little water can feed you, year after year. As Ron Finley says, “Growing your own food is like printing your own money.”
