Support SEEDS During the Growing Season!
SEEDS relies on the generous support of our community to deliver our programs and sustain our gardens. We seek to be a truly grassroots organization, one that is funded directly by the community from which we grow. If you would like to make a one-time, recurring or tribute gift to SEEDS, please click the button below. Thank you for helping SEEDS grow!
