Description

Free the Seeds! Seed and Start Fair is a community-powered opportunity to build a sustainable and resilient future through real seeds, real food, and real skills.


Free the Seeds!, a program of the local nonprofit Farm Hands, is organized and run entirely by volunteers, who generously give their time and skills each year to host to the Free the Seeds! Seed and Start Fair. We’re actively preparing for our 3rd annual event, which will be held March 3, 2018, at Flathead Valley Community College, and need your support.

Free the Seeds! is proud to join #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity not just worldwide but also locally. Held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday inspires people like you to join together in improving our local community. What better way to give meaningfully than to support the Free the Seeds! Seed and Start Fair, a FREE community-powered event that encourages people to build a sustainable and resilient future through real seeds, real food, and real skills.

Just to give you an idea of what was achieved by Free the Seeds! in 2017:

  • More than 1,800 people (almost 2% of Flathead County’s population) participated in the 2nd annual Seed and Start Fair.
  • Free the Seeds! prepared and gave away more than 9,500 seed packets; thousands of additional seed packets were donated by local businesses and community members.
  • The event featured nearly 30 skill-building workshops for adults and kids, more than 40 resource booths, and community roundtable talks.

The fair costs nearly $10,000 to produce, and every dollar gets us closer to our goal of keeping the event FREE. So please consider supporting Free the Seeds! this #GivingTuesday:

  • Donations of any size can be made here. http://freetheseedsmontana.com/give/donate/
  • Donors who give $100 or more are considered sponsors and are recognized before and during the event. You can learn more about our sponsorship tiers here. http://freetheseedsmontana.com/give/be-a-sponsor/
  • All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your support!
