Seed Order Form
We are no longer accepting orders for 2023.
What is the URI Free Seed Program and how do I place an order? Every year, the Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation donates expired but still viable packets of Burpee® seeds to URI Cooperative Extension. This year, individuals, and organizations in Rhode Island only are invited to place seed packet orders for the cost of shipping & handling.
Only non-profit organizations, schools, churches, and community gardens may pick up seed orders (see 2023 Free Seed Program order form for pickup dates). All other orders will be sent by mail for the cost of shipping and handling.
From the Burpee website: “We do not sell seed that has been genetically modified (GMO). Burpee has never bought or sold GMO seeds, and we have no intention of doing so in the future.” For more information, please visit the Burpee website here.
