Doug’s Free Seed Shacks

Doug’s Free Seed Shacks

I’m excited to partner with Farm to Table of Western Pennsylvania for my latest new project. I’m converting six old newspaper sales boxes into free seed libraries. They are the kind you would feed quarters to, open the front and pull out a paper.

This spring five of them will be placed around the area and one will be moved every so often around Western Pennsylvania to hopefully, give everyone has a chance to get some interesting seeds to try. Some boxes will be located in the city and others in the suburbs and beyond.

We’re just in the beginning stages of putting the project together and accepting seed donations from gardeners, nurseries, seed companies and anyone else interested in helping. Special varieties will be added throughout the season.      

I’m also looking for someone who might be able to paint all six boxes.

When the Free Seed Shacks are in place, I’ll have all the details of where they are listed here.

If you would like to donate seeds send them to:
