Do Good

Start a garden, a couple of plants,
or a single seed.

Let's Grow!Grow Your Own Food In Any Container.

Plant a Seed Day is all about making it as easy as possible for people to get started on their gardening journey. Whether you have acres of land or just a small balcony, whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a complete novice, there’s a way for you to grow your own food. 

Our challenge to you – grab the quirkiest planter you can find and gear up for this year’s theme... Anything but a Planter, because if it holds soil, it’ll grow seeds! From recycled containers to old shoes, growing food can start anywhere. Commit to unconventional containers with us and pledge to plant on March 19th.
