Our seed library is still available if you need seeds for 2020.


If you are interested in saving seeds and need tomato, bean, pea or lettuce seeds you can join our seed saving community!


You can take up to 3 varieties. Email coordinator@richmondfoodsecurity.org and we’ll have seeds available to be picked up. We have protocols in place to protect your health and ours to minimize cross-contamination.

Our mission is to inspire a robust Richmond food system through education, advocacy, and community building initiatives.
