URI Free Seed Program

Free Seed Order Form

Order deadline: February 10, 2017.

The URI Extension Outreach Center is pleased to offer FREE SEEDS! This program is made possible annually through the generous donation of seeds by Ocean State Job Lot, and through the efforts of our URI Master Gardener Program volunteers.

Vegetable, flower and herb seed packets are now available for schools, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, 4-H clubs, community gardens and any education-based or youth group for only the price of postage!


We have 3 options for obtaining your seed order*:
  • Pick up the seed packets in person at URI East Farm on Saturday 1/28/2017 or Saturday, 2/25 2017 
  • We will mail you your seed order if you include a check to cover the cost of shipping and handling.
  • The URI Master Gardener Program will cover the cost of mailing the first 250 orders to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations on a first-come, first served basis.  Seed order forms must be submitted by January 31, 2017 along with proof of nonprofit status to be eligible.  See order form for details.


2 pickup dates include 1/28/2017 and 2/25/2017 from 10am – 2pm.
Free seed starting workshops held at 12pm each pickup day.
