Community Seeds in Action!
Each year, Snake River Seed Cooperative donates hundreds of seed packets to community organizations involved in education, farming, gardening, nutrition, food, and seed saving. Our seed donations have gone to community and non-profit gardens, school teaching gardens, seed libraries, non-profit fundraisers and auctions, and community incentive programs.
Our hope is that through these donations, we can support the lives of those in need and share the joy and history that our seeds hold.
Below are some of our "Perennial Partners" that are doing great work in the community with the help of Snake River Seed Cooperative's donations.
Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS)
Beginning in 2016, we started partnering with this local community organization. They are considered a Perennial Partner, receiving seed donations on an annual basis to support their school garden.

Eden Community Gardens
Located in Spokane, WA, this organization has partnered with SRSC since 2017. Eden Community Garden is a place to grow healthy crops, gather together, and give to others. Serving the needs of North Spokane, Washington through personal garden plots and food bank plots.
"Eden Community Garden is the largest community garden in Spokane County. In 2018, 32 families were able to grow healthy organic vegetables in our raised beds. Using six raised beds and using contributions from our gardeners, we were able to donate 1,564 pounds of produce to Mead, North County, Salvation Army, Audubon Park, Union Gospel Mission, and Shalom Ministry Food Banks. We anticipate that we will be able to increase our giving to food banks at least fourfold when we begin harvesting from the food bank plot next summer."
