Grow This

2021 Grow This: OR Garden Challenge Anyone from anywhere in the world can join using their own seeds, or to follow along, anytime through September.  Free seeds for Oregonians are now all taken.  But, sign up at the link below to follow along and be the first to know when free seeds are available again!  

What is the Challenge? Grow different seeds.
Grow different seeds. Anyone can join using their own seeds! While supplies last, Oregonians who sign up for the Challenge and request seeds will receive four different seed packets free of charge. Oregon State University will send these seed packets to county Extension offices around the state for pick-up in March.  Some of the seed types to be mailed out are listed here: How to Plant and Grow Seeds.

Seed pickup for those who registered for them (we are now out of seeds) (anyone can also join using their own seeds)
Seeds will be available by appointment in every county following county health department and Governor’s Office recommendations, including wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distance. No contact delivery is possible because seeds are in sealed envelopes that can be labeled and either put outside the office on a table or in some cases right inside the front door on a table for pickup.  (The cost of mailing seeds in 2021 is very high because they require special handling and Food Hero has so many seeds to distribute.)
