Of note are Russo Siberian kale varieties that can withstand thick ice and temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Cross-pollinated Brassica oleracea are welcome in this mix, so don't be surprised if a sneaky collard brethren has kissed the flowers of a kale. Let the fun begin!

Packets contain over 200 seeds.

Are seeds really free?

Our mission is to make diverse seeds available to everyone. Although the seeds are free, you will need to pay for shipping. In addition, we ask you to consider making a donation to cover program costs. This allows us to make seed free for those who need it.

When will I get my seeds?

Seeds will ship within a week of ordering. This program is run by dedicated and hardworking volunteers.  Going to Seed is not a seed company. You may receive packages that have less than the stated number of seeds, germination rates may not meet the federal standards, shipping may be slower than you prefer, or there may be any other number of unanticipated glitches. Please be patient with us as we improve the standards over time.

How are seeds packaged?

Seeds are packed in moisture proof, 100% compostable materials. We recommend saving this packet to fill and send back to the program.

About the Seed Steward

Joseph resides at 2150 to 2450 feet on his 68 acre farmstead in the Blanchard Creek Valley of northeast Washington state. Just miles beyond the Northeast slopes of Mount Spokane - the highest peak of the Selkirk Mountain range - you will find him in his gardens, fields, and forests toiling with earnest and devout intent. In this rugged temperate climate - where last frosts can creep into early June and first frosts can sneak into late August - he works with annual and perennial plants selecting for short season harvest schedules and drought and cold resilience. Brassicas are a natural fit.
