seed packets

For every $5 you donate to Seeds For Refugees, you will receive a packet of Mammoth Grey Sunflower Seeds. Each handcrafted packet contains roughly 50-70 seeds, with each seed producing a flower. 100% of our proceeds go to SaveTheChildren.orgPlease reuse or recycle  your paper packets after planting.

SUSTAINaBILITY 

All of the seed we handle are non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free, and guaranteed to grow. Our seeds are packaged in natural kraft paper, a single-material product that is 100% biodegradable and compostable. These packets are not bleached to ensure as little chemical processing as possible. To minimize plastic waste, we stamp our designs on each packet by hand rather than using ink cartridges. 

GOALS

Our goal is to bring peace to the victims of the ongoing tragedy in Syria and beyond. While we are are a small team currently based out of San Diego, CA, we would love to expand our reach to other cities by gaining more volunteers as well as creating an online shop. We are still sorting out the logistics of expansion, so for now, we are working at a local level face-to-face, but we would be happy to ship our seed packets anywhere if the cost of shipping can be covered by those making the donation.

Meet the TEAM

Our team currently consists of two active members, Max Petrich and Jillian Black. Seeds For Refugees was born out of our desire to help others and our aspirations to make this world a more beautiful and unified place.


DONATE. PLANT. RAISE AWARENESS.
