Recognizing School Gardens Across the U.S.
9th Annual Seed Keeper Project 2019
Starts On Monday, January 7, 2019
We need YOU to make this happen!
We believe it our responsibility to take part in educating coming generations about the benefits of gardening and growing your own food. It is an important life skill!
We are the winners of The Seed Keeper Project! Our winning schools inspire us!
"I respect generosity in people, and I respect it in companies, too. I don't look at it as philanthropy; I see it as an investment in the community."
"Your Seed Keeper Project is just one example of the many initiatives needed across the country to engage parents, families, and children to get excited about making healthy choices and we applaud your work!"

Hi Carol and Kerrie,
What a great surprise to receive the Seed Keeper and award from you! Now our seeds will be safely stored and organized. I usually bring the seeds back and forth from my house, but after a week of the hustle of gardening-with-120-kids, there are some in my car, my backpack, pants pockets, the tool shed, etc., and then I scramble to find the purple carrots to plant with the 8th grade… “I know I just saw them somewhere…” Just the other day, I noticed a seed packet outside the school garden shed, with some nibbles in it. Some little critter had snuck in and hauled it away.
Thanks to your creativity and generosity, I will be a better-organized Garden Teacher!
