Garden Seeds Program

Since 2009, Winona Grange has provided vegetable, herb and flower seed packets to other Granges, community gardens, food banks, libraries and groups that promote gardening. In 2023 we distributed over 90 boxes. Many of these groups donated their excess produce to their local food bank.

Where do we get the seed packets? Thanks again to a generous donation from Bi-Mart Corporation, we have seed packets that Bi-Mart stores returned to their warehouse. They are stamped “Sell by 12/23.” Bi-Mart cannot sell them in 2024, nor can we, and nor can you. They are Ferry-Morse brand. All are non-GMO; some are heirlooms; some are organics.

Who do we ship to? We ship only to groups (not families or individuals) in the Pacific Northwest.

What’s in the box? When we pack boxes, we try to make sure that each contains an assortment of beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, corn, cucumbers, herbs, lettuces, onions, peas, peppers (sweet and Jalapenos), radishes, spinach, summer and winter squash, tomatoes, and pollinator-friendly flowers. Your box may include some packets that don’t appeal to you. Some may not grow in your area. We have no control over what we get.

How big is a box? The box measures 11” X 11” X 6” and holds approximately 250 seed packets.

How much does one cost?
Last year, our boxes went out to 4 states, so it’s hard to determine what our shipping cost will be until we take boxes to our local post office. We are a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that needs to recoup our costs. Therefore, we are charging $20 per box. If our costs are lower, the surplus will go to our scholarship fund.

How to order? To order and pay shipping via PayPal or credit card, click Buy Now. Make sure to fill in the name of your garden or gardening organization in the box on the form.

Ordering is closed for 2024, see you next year.

We’re not Amazon, so we may not ship on the same day we receive your order.
