Native Seeds

  Grant Amount: Not Specified (Deadline: None Specified)

Information

Native Seeds/SEARCH offers small donations of their seeds to eligible organizations in the Greater Southwest region. These Community Seed Grants are designed to support the work of educators and those working to enhance the nutritional, social, economic, or environmental health of underprivileged groups in the region, while simultaneously keeping locally-adapted crop varieties alive and in active use in farms and gardens.
Seed Grant eligibility is restricted solely to organizations operating in the Native Seeds/SEARCH region of focus: the southwestern U.S. and northwestern Mexico.
Donations are open to organizations working on educational, food security, or community development projects. Priority is given to projects that will clearly benefit underprivileged groups. Seed Grants are not available to individuals.
Grants are available for up to 30 seed packets, however most organizations find they only need between 5-20 packets. Please reflect on your organization’s growing capacity when selecting seeds, including the size of your growing space and your collective availability to tend to and harvest these crops. On average, one packet is appropriate for 50-100 square feet of growing space.

Eligibility

Organizations are eligible to receive a grant once per calendar year, and we encourage re-applying each year over requesting more seeds than you have capacity to grow.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and are typically filled within 4-6 weeks.
