We’ve packaged our bulk seed into bundles with enough seed for TEN generous servings (at almost 50% off our already amazingly low in-person prices) and moved access to our seed education to a Student Portal. In addition, the seed varieties in our program are adaptable and resilient – not zone-dependent.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

CHOOSE A BUNDLE:
Simply choose one or more of our three pre-selected variety groupings in the Essential-25, Basic-25, or Banquet-25 bundles, or get ALL 75 varieties in the Ultimate-75 Bundle. Each of the "-25" bundles come with enough seed for 250 of our generous servings, and the Ultimate comes with enough seed for 750 generous servings!!
OR MAKE YOUR OWN BUNDLE:
Build on your order, or create your own bundle, by adding extras of as many individual varieties as you like with the Mix and Match Bundle. Minimum total order required.
SHOP AS A GROUP AND SAVE!
Each variety is the perfect size for a community garden, a neighborhood co-op, a seed swap, or even just to prepare 10 amazing food resilient gifts. Shop as a community, church group, or just a group of friends!

What do we mean by generous?

Those who have attended a Great American Seed Up in person know first hand. With the Seed Up in a Box, the average cost for a serving of seed is $0.72. For example: An order of our basil seed at $5.50 has 10 teaspoons, so each TEASPOON is ONLY $0.55 (serving size and cost vary by seed variety).

DON'T WANT TO HOST YOUR OWN SEED UP?

How about just making your own amazing food resilient or gardening gift sets for 10 or more families and friends you care about! Take our bundles and divvy the varieties up into suggested servings, add a Basic Seed Saving Book, maybe throw in a City Farming book too, and you have an amazing gift that can start a new gardener or urban farmer off with a bang.

This is truly a gift that can keep on giving for a lifetime!

ABOUT THE GREAT AMERICAN SEED UP EVENT

Imagine walking into a room filled with over 100 varieties of climate appropriate seeds ready to literally be scooped up and taken home for planting or saving. This is exactly what the Great American Seed Up is all about. “The idea is to give valley residents an opportunity to learn about seed saving and then harvest as many ounces of seed they wish to take home,” says Farmer Greg Peterson, Urban Farm Founder and local seed saver. We are partnering with the Uptown Phoenix Farmers Market. The event features a seed bazaar with bulk quantities of popular vegetable seed varieties available for purchase at bulk discounts.
Attendees are encouraged to buy and share the seeds with their neighborhood and community groups to spur local gardening and seed saving efforts. “We’re trying to get seeds in the hands of the people,” says Seed Up co-organizer Bill McDorman of Seedsave.org. “The more seed diversity we have growing in our neighborhood gardens and backyard plots, the more resilient we’ll be as a community. These seeds are the best varieties we can find in bulk to help you start your seed saving adventure.”
Included with pre-registration for the Seed Up will be several online presentations with seed and gardening experts to spread knowledge about traditional and modern seed saving practices. Discussion topics will include: how to save and store seeds, planting and starting seeds, how to properly store your new seeds and how to grow a garden using your new seeds.
