Donation Program

Supporting Gardening and Access to Food for Everyone!

*PLEASE NOTE: If you are a local Asheville area school, community organization/garden, we are asking that you opt in for our School/Community Organization/Garden Giveaway in lieu of the Donation Program. Register here.

Sow True Seed supports community gardens, educational enterprises and gardens that give. Our aim is to provide excellent quality, open-pollinated seeds so that we can empower communities to grow more food.

Every year we donate thousands of packets of seeds. Our hope is that these seeds fulfill their destinies by reaching fertile soil and caring hands. We have provided seed donations to organizations and schools near and far.

The seeds we donate are often packed for the previous year. While we cannot guarantee the germination rates, we donate them in good faith and believe the seeds to be viable. Many kinds of seeds when stored properly can last up to 5 or more years. While we want to sell the most viable seed packed for the current year, we end up with a lot left from the year before. What better use could these seeds have than to provide food and learning opportunities for our community and communities around the country, or even the world?
