Operation Green Plant - Free Vegetable, Flower or Herb Seeds

 Operation Green Plant offers free vegetable, flower or herb seeds to communities and schools. The program is courtesy of the America the Beautiful Fund - an organization that's been dedicated to keeping America green and beautiful for a couple of decades now.

To get the free seeds, you'll need to write a short letter explaining your proposed project, fill out the application and provide a check to cover shipping and handling. This could be a great way to kick start a community vegetable co-op, a kid-managed garden for a school or classroom project or even a roadside beautifying project for a local Rotary Club.

According to their website - The Operation Green Plant Program has:

  • saved more than 800 tons of seeds and 7 million flower bulbs from going to waste in landfills - free plant seeds
  • grown 1.75 billion pounds of food for the hungry - free vegetable seeds
  • beautified roadways, parks and neighborhoods in 20,000 communities in all 50 states. - free flower seeds
