Grow Your Own Food!

We want to help you to grow fresh produce for your family!

Whether you are an experienced gardener or a newbie, you can grow your own food!


The Plot Against Hunger steering committee and Arlington Virginia Cooperative Extension have seeds to distribute. Filling out this form (VCE) or this form (Plot) will allow us to get seeds to you by directing you to your closest neighborhood seed distribution point. These seeds are free. Priority is given to those who will be growing food for local food banks in Arlington and Alexandria, but they are also available for home and community gardeners.
