Seattle has a network full of wonderful people who grow to give in different ways. Backyard gardeners, church gardens, a city wide giving garden program run by The Department of Neighborhoods. Volunteers come together deliver the food to food banks, senior centers, residences, shelters, food stands, food pantries…wherever it is needed in their communities. Seattle’s Giving Garden Network (SGGN) is an entirely volunteer-run non-profit that helps to serve as a connector for the hundreds of individuals and gardens dedicated to growing and giving in the city of Seattle. Seattle’s Giving Garden Network operates under a fiscal sponsorship agreement with GROW (formerly P-Patch Trust), a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our team of volunteers work hard to support gardeners with many resources. We have 3 programs that provide lots of support to many volunteer gardeners. Our Sprouts program grows over 20 thousand free starts that ensures a reliable start to the growing season leading to successful crops and ensuring food is donated. SGGN also offers thousands of free seed packets prior to the growing season. We also help with financial assistance that help in any giving garden needs.
