Our Mission

Our mission is to create a culture of learning, sharing, and community through sustainable seed saving that reclaims seeds as a public resource, encourages biodiversity as an alternative to genetically modified seeds, fosters self-reliance over dependence upon large food producers, increases food security, promotes a healthy diet and develops seed adapted to thrive in the soils and climate of our region.

Events:

 

The new Seed Library is off to a great start.  Over 50  people of all ages attended the Seed Swap Workshop on February 23rd.  This event marked the Grand Opening of our Seed Library here at the WSU Extension Office. Beginning vegetable gardeners and seasoned growers alike came to swap seeds and see what the new Seed Library is all about.  Master Gardeners were present to answer gardening questions and staff from Organic Seed Alliance were there to demonstrate some seed saving skills.

If you’d like to make a monetary donation to the Seed Library, you can send a check made payable to the Jefferson County Master Gardener Program at 121 Oak Bay Road, Port Hadlock, WA 98339.  Please write “Seed Library” in the memo.
