We donate seeds each year to hundreds of gardens across the United States.
The financial support of Herman Warsh and his wife Maryanne Mott helped to establish our headquarters in Decorah, Iowa: Heritage Farm. To honor their support, we donate seeds to organizations and gardens in need through our Herman's Garden Seed Donation Program.
Groups that qualify for seed donations include:
- Community and educational groups who will freely share the harvest
- Community and educational groups who will save seed for others in need
- non-profits, schools, community gardens, and educational programs
Due to customs restrictions and shipping costs, we cannot honor requests outside of the United States. We cannot accept requests from individuals or from projects where seed or resulting produce will be sold.
Donations are mailed within 4-6 weeks and include a variety of seeds based on supply. As seeds may have been stored in a wide variety of conditions, we recommend planting the seeds within 1 year.
