Donate seeds...take seeds...share locally grown seeds suitable to our Manawatū climate!

The purpose of a seed exchange is to provide free acess to seeds for anyone wishing to growing their own kai, and to house donations from those who wish to share.

​​We invite donations of seeds for our seed exchanges, seedlings (vegetables and herbs) for planting in community garden projects, and we are a drop-off for clean garden pots in good condition (these go to Tipu Ora Seedlings who only use recycled materials.) 

Palmerston North
