Make a gift and protect our food system for the future. Preserving heirloom varieties ensures the genetic breadth of our food supply remains strong while passing cultural food memories and family traditions. Together, we can keep these treasures where they belong—in our gardens and on our tables.

Your Gift in Action

Seed Bank Stewardship

Your support funds the work of maintaining the varieties in our seed bank, so that they may be around for generations to come.

Heirloom Seed Distribution

Because of you, community gardens can grow healthy food. Your gift brings seeds to where they are needed.

Preserving Legacies
