The Victory Gardens for Peace (VGfP) Seed Bank has continued to expand with donated seeds and those grown within a 15-mile radius of the Mendocino Coast. Over 60% of our seeds have been locally grown, and thanks to a generous donation by Bountiful Gardens earlier this year, our current inventory has tripled to over 450 varieties as of fall 2018.

Agriculture and seeds are the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. - Safe Seed PledgeThe seed bank is about more than the seeds—it's also about celebrating and enhancing the culture of community seed-saving. Each spring and fall we host the annual Mendocino Seed Exchange held at our local farmers market. This winter we will be hosting our third and fourth Seed Cleaning Jamboree where local gardeners and farmers come together to clean, share and exchange seed. The VGfP Seed Bank has become a vehicle for bringing people together and sharing simple techniques and stories about growing seed, soil and food.

VGfP Seed Bank is focused on creating a more resilient community through the sharing of seeds. We are able to offer free seed because we're donation-based. We invite you to visit us and take some seed for your garden. If you would like to contribute seeds or make a donation, please visit the VGfP Seed Bank and Demonstration Mini-Farm at the Stanford Inn in Mendocino, CA, or call (847)404-2586.

Happy gardening, hope to see you soon!
