Mission Statement

The mission of Philadelphia Seed Exchange is to cultivate relationships between gardeners, seed savers and plant breeders, to protect our garden heritage for future generations, and to build a resilient food system in the Delaware Valley with open-pollinated heirloom seeds and plants. To achieve this the Philadelphia Seed exchange provides educational opportunities, including discussions on plant genetics and the value of preserving biodiversity, hosts free exchanges and encourages sharing of locally produced seeds.
