Help Us Grow

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!

Ways to support urban gardening and educational programming year-round:

We are always in need to garden tools, seeds and expertise to cultivate and sustain our programs and gardens. Check out our Amazon Wishlist for in-kind donation ideas. Plus, we always appreciate gift certificates to garden centers and hardware stores!


Other Ways You Can Support SEEDS

  • Visit the Southside Garden on Gilbert Street during the week and at special events to plan your own seasonal or permaculture garden!
  • Participate in Our Programs! Come to a workshop, or sign up to volunteer! 
  • Come to our Events!  The Harvest Dinner, Pie Social and CFSA Farm Tour are just a few of the events we host or are a part of every year.  Join our newsletter to keep on top of what’s coming at SEEDS.
  • Support Businesses that Support SEEDS! Many area businesses support SEEDS throughout the year, often through donating a portion of their sales. When you buy local, you can give local – and enhance the impact of your dollars within our own community! Purchase a “Taste of Downtown Durham” treatment from The Retreat at Brightleaf, and 10% of the price will be donated to SEEDS, year-round. 
  • Donate Your Car Through SEEDS can now accept donations of cars, boats, RVs, motorcycles, jet skis, even airplanes through this broker! The process is simple: you call, DonationLine picks up your vehicle, sells it and sends the proceeds (minus an administrative fee) to us.  You receive a tax deduction for your donation, without any hassle.
