Southern Exposure Seed donations to community garden
If you know of some worthy gardening venture, a school, a community coop, Southern Exposure has some seeds they will donate. This is from their monthly newsletter.
"This time of year brings us a happy task here at Southern Exposure. We're chock full of fresh new seeds, and have to go through all of our stock to remove the packets that are officially 'out of date' - just barely too old to sell, but still quite viable and too good to compost! We set aside a section of shelving for these older packets. They are labeled as 'donation seed' and are sent out in response to requests from schools, community gardens, and other projects that seek to offer seeds and gardening support to those in need.
It's the time of year for giving and being thankful, and it warms our hearts to be able to pass on still-viable seed to worthy folks. This picture is from a community garden in Florida that was established with donation seed from our stock. They've done a nice job! If your garden, community, or organization is in sore need of seeds, this is the perfect time to e-mail us and make your request. Of course, this is also our busy season (so don't expect to get your seeds the next day!), but we do our best to send out all of these seeds and answer every request that we can. "
