Seed Savers Exchange

Seeds belong in our garden and on our table.

Help us save America’s garden heritage by growing and sharing heirloom food.

We built a movement, not a seed company.

Since 1975, we’ve been growing, saving, and sharing heirloom seeds. Grow with us and help keep heirlooms where they belong—in our gardens and on our tables, for generations to come.
