Seeds to the People

seed bank header

We are very excited to launch our latest project – a NW Tassie SEED BANK – in collaboration with Multicap, with funding from the Mercy Foundation.

Every Thursday The Farm is becoming a hive of activity with our team cutting seed packets from recycled papers, sorting seeds already donated by locals and the wonderful folk at Urban Farming Tasmania then packaging them up ready to be given away.

How can you be a part of it?

Send us your seeds!  Preferably your home grown best so we keep things local and also know we are sharing the best of the best. Our address is PO Box 3097, Burnie 7320 or you can drop in and see us between 9-2 every Tuesday & Thursday.

Ask for seeds! If you are starting a garden or would like to add some local goodness get in contact and hopefully within a few weeks we will have enough in store to send out.

Learn how to save seeds!  We will be sharing seed saving starter tips right here over the coming months.  Sign up to the blog so you don’t miss out.
