We are accepting seed donations

Open-Pollinated - plants pollinated by insects, birds, wind, or other natural means.
Heirloom Seeds - seeds that have been grown and passed down over many generations. Heirlooms are open-pollinated and retain original traits from one generation to the next.
Hybrid Seeds - the result of two plants with specific characteristics being deliberately crossed to produce a new third variety. If you save seed from a hybrid, and grow it out, you will get one of the parents, not the plant that produced the seed.
GMO seeds (Genetically modified organism) - bred not in a garden but in a laboratory using modern biotechnology techniques like gene splicing. Scientists modify a seed's DNA to ensure the resulting plant produces desired characteristics.
Chemical Free - plants grown without herbicides or pesticides.
Cross-Pollination - when one plant pollinates a plant of another variety. The two plants' genetic material combines and the resulting seeds from that pollination will have characteristics of both varieties and is a new variety.
