Your Gift in Action

Seed Bank Stewardship

Your support funds the work of maintaining the varieties in our seed bank and enables us to send seeds to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault as an insurance policy.

Heirloom Seed Distribution

Because of you, community gardens can grow healthy food. Your gift brings seeds to where they are needed and helps ensure seeds are where they belong—growing in gardens, not just sitting in a bank.

Preserving Legacies

Together, we’re not just saving seeds—we’re saving stories and legacies, and with them, our heritage and the practice of seed stewardship.
