URI Cooperative Extension is pleased to offer FREE vegetable, flower and herb seed packets to schools, community and youth groups, 4-H clubs, community gardens, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, and individuals! 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.

The 2018 seed ordering period is now closed (no exceptions).  If you have already ordered your seeds, we look forward to seeing you at the pickup day you indicated on your form.  If you are unable to pick up seeds on that date, see the other opportunities for pickup below. Click here to sign up for the URI Cooperative Extension newsletter to receive updates about next year’s free seed program, gardening workshops and more!
