The Seed Project is a non-profit project that provides employment opportunities to adults with special needs. We provide a variety of seeds, including vegetables, herbs, and flowers, to local garden centers, gardeners, and other retail outlets. Our mission is to provide meaningful employment to adults.

Seeds are hand-packed with care by participants in our Individualized Education Program (IEP) for students ages 18-21. Students learn how to live independently, obtain a job, navigate the community, and access local resources through the program. All sales proceeds go to support this program. This project is supported by and Ceres Trust. The seeds are grown locally by many veterans.
