Volunteer With Us

At Native Seeds/SEARCH, we depend heavily on our volunteers to help grow, conserve, and distribute the seed which is at the heart of our organization. The work we do offers volunteers the opportunity to help in a variety of ways – at our store, the Conservation Center (seed bank), on our farm in Patagonia, at special events, and more. There are opportunities for both groups and for individuals, short term and longer term.
