Got Seeds?

May 22, 2024

Did you know you can donate seeds or fruit and vegetable plants to Edmonton’s Food Bank? As part of our “mission to seek solutions to the causes of hunger,” we collect seeds and plants to help our neighbours grow their own food, and we need your help!

If you have surplus seeds or plants, please donate them to help get more people gardening. We are developing a seed bank to share vegetable and fruit seeds with our agency partners and the wider gardening community. We want to make growing food more accessible to everyone. We hope to empower people to know where their food comes from and to eat more healthy, fresh produce.

How does it work? Contact us when you have seeds or plants to donate and we will pick them up or you can drop them off at our warehouse at 11508 120 street. We will then share them with community groups such as Sustainable Food Edmonton, which makes them available to community gardeners throughout the city. We will also use them in the raised garden beds next to our Annex building and share them with other agencies, such as Uncles and Aunts at Large, that are looking to help people learn to grow their own food.

To donate, contact Judy at 780.425.2133 ext. 230 or email her at

Did you know? Instead of donating seeds at harvest time you can donate your extra produce to Edmonton’s Food Bank! Simply remove most of the dirt and drop donations off at our main warehouse at 11508 120 Street. To learn more, visit this classic blog.
