Who we give to

Each year we donate hundreds of seed packets to organizations and events that help people get growing!  

So far in 2024 we have given seeds to the following seed libraries:

Marshall Public Library Seed Library:  Pocatello, Idaho

Grove Hill Seed Library:  Grove Hill, Alabama

Alma Seed Library:   Alma, Arkansas

Evangeline Parish Seed Library:  Ville Platte, Louisiana

What is a seed library?  A seed library is often housed within a public library and runs in a very similar way.  Instead of books, seeds are "rented" for free to gardeners, who are asked only to pay it forward by saving and returning some seed from the crop in a future year to the library.  All of the seeds sold by Giving Ground Seeds are open-pollinated heirlooms that growers can save their own seeds from, making them perfect additions to seed libraries!

In 2022 we donated to Alianza Agri-Cultura de Taos, an organization based in Taos, New Mexico with the mission:  "To foster a resilient agricultural economy, culture, community and environment in Taos County through advocacy, capacity building, network development, community engagement, information dissemination, and infrastructure development in collaboration with local, regional state and federal governments, organizations and businesses."

Each year we help sponsor the Ogden Seed Exchange in Ogden, Utah.  The exchange is a non-profit founded for free and public education and interest in selecting, growing, saving and sharing heirloom and other open pollinated quality seeds.
