Huge thank you to Johnny’s Selected Seeds for their generous donation of seeds! These seeds will be put to good use toward the Lettuce Link mission of facilitating access to fresh, nutritious, and organic produce for everyone.
A small portions of seeds will be used directly to grow produce for donation on our two urban farms – the Giving Garden at Marra Farm and the Seattle Community Farm. The majority of the seeds will be distributed to community gardeners throughout Seattle who grow organic produce for Seattle area food banks and to limited income individuals and their families who use food bank services to increase both food accessibility and self-sufficiency. Last year together with these individual gardeners, 56,452 pounds of organic produce were grown and donated to Seattle food banks, meal programs, and shelters.
