GIVEAWAY: 25 Seed Packets


Free organic seeds for your garden. Need I say more? This year, as part of their Sowing Millions Project, Seeds of Change is giving away 25 packets of seeds to Food Renegade readers.

What’s so special about these seeds? Glad you asked.

First off, they’re completely organic. Why would you want to use non-organic seeds in your organic garden? Why not start your vegetables, flowers, and plants off on the right foot from the get-go?

Second, they’re GMO-free! No weird, genetically engineered pieces of foreign DNA have been forcibly incorporated into the plants. YAY.

Third, they’re open-pollinated. That means they will produce new generations of whatever you plant. In other words, you could collect seeds from your hardiest, tastiest plants this year and plant those collected seeds next year! Open pollination is great because it increases biodiversity and helps ensure that your garden only gets healthier and stronger with each passing year as you select for plants that grow well in your soil and weather conditions. Believe it or not, most commercial seeds these days aren’t open-pollinated. They’re commercial hybrids or closed, self-pollinated plants created to ensure consistency year after year while also requiring that you buy new seeds each year.

And finally, they’re quality tested. If you’re new to the world of gardening, you may not know why that’s important. So let me paint a picture for you. Say you go to your nearest box store and pick out the $1 packets of seeds on the rack in the garden center. You get home and plant them. Out of 100 seeds, maybe half actually sprout, and of those, only a third will actually end up being viable. You got what you paid for — crappy seeds. At Seeds of Change, they’re committed to growing and creating the highest-quality organic, open-pollinated seeds on the market. They actually test, research, develop, and test some more. Their seeds are actually viable. The vast majority of them will sprout for you, and most of those sprouts will have the potential to turn into healthy, productive plants.

So, have I won you over yet?

I have? I had you at “free seeds”? Then here’s how you enter the giveaway. We’re keeping it simple.

  68. Joanisa says

    A year ago, we, a small group of committed and concerned students, began to sow seeds of change at Eckerd College by beginning an organic garden on campus. While it was a struggle at first (the administration initially resisted the idea), we are now considered by the president of our college to be “the moral center of Eckerd” and were voted the “best service club” on campus this past year. Now we’re working on getting food from the garden into our cafeteria! Your weekly updates gift us wonderful information which we glean and share with others. We appreciate all of the good work that you do and would be honored to plant your seeds in our garden to share a bountiful harvest with other students, staff, and faculty

  72. Bill O'Neill says

    Hmmm….Now that I’m a Food Renegade I feel suddenly larger and heather. Seed of Change and Food Renegade are the types of organizations that give back to the common wealth of this country. They should be applauded in their efforts to deliver information and products that enhance our quality of life and promote ecologically friendly practices. I am a member of the “Blessed Garden” project. We are located in Bonney Lake Washington. Maybe 35 mi, as the crow flies, from Mt Rainier. Check out our FB page. Here it is the middle of June and we still haven’t been able to plant our garden yet. Cool temps and to much rain. Only one day over 70 degrees since last September. These seeds will come at the right time. Thanks, again for the seed offer. I/we support your work.

    I was so thrilled to plant some Seeds of Change golden beets from seed. They are doing beautifully. I realized I really wanted to plant some large leaf purslane; one of my best finds from SOC ever! Well, to my chagrin and great surprise, I found several growing in with the beets. They are notoriously prolific seeders, so this was common when it is around. Thanks SOC, for great seeds and great little surprises!!
