Free seeds for schools 2014

Person Author: Lajos Szabo Calender February 4, 2014 Posted No Tags Comment 30 Comments

It is closed now; thanks for all who applied! We have sent to about 30 schools so far and will send an other 30 before the end of March. Really sorry if you are not among those. We had lots of emails and we have only limited stock for this project. You should have sent an email as stated below and not comment here, but it is okay now.


Spring is on the way and hopefully more and more schools have a bit of veggie garden. To help some of the youngsters to get into gardening we run a free seeds for schools program again.

So if you run a gardening club in a school or collage send the address of the school to freeseeds @ Please note seeds will NOT be sent to private addresses. We have a limited stock but should be able to send to about 30 schools a variety of vegetable seeds which are best for the kids for example radish and rocket seeds.

  • Hayley Pitman:

    We are class 1 and 2 (KS1) at Antony School in Cornwall. At the moment we are spending a lot of time in our outside area, gardening and understanding what plants and flowers need to grow.
    We want to make our area one where we can spend some quiet times, reading, pond dipping, observing and den building. We have cleared an allotment patch ready to grow some vegetables or fruit.
    We are asking if you would help us in making our area one that will be enjoyed by all children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 by donating us some seeds or bulbs to grow a range of food?
