Seed Donations

NS/S invites organizations in the Southwest focused on improving seed security, seed distribution, seed saving, and seed access within their own communities, to apply for a seed donation.  Organizations who have existing or planned seed banks are also welcome to apply.  The goal of the program is to help establish/increase populations of traditional seeds in communities who have a relationship to the seeds. 

NS/S may donate excess seed from our own collection or in partnership with another seed provider, and will give priority to organizations that are culturally connected to the seeds.  Quantities donated will be at the discretion of NS/S staff and will depend on availability. If a specific variety is low, NS/S may also work with partner organizations to increase seed for their communities or seedbanks.
