Currently I'm planning a youth garden and I'm looking for some free seeds.

I'll be working with about 25 kids. All of them are residents of a low income housing unit I work at and almost all of them are new immigrants or first generation American. I'm not very picky as long as they can grow in Minnesota. I would like heirloom vegetables in order to teach the kids about plant diversity and for the wow factor. I can send a SASE.

Looks like you will get plenty of seeds. I have lots of heirloom vegies I would be willing to pack into a SASE. Email me at Race93car2@aol.com and lets see if I can help in the areas that you did not get any seeds.
