The SEED Bank is a program under the UCSB AS Food Bank that provides students with a pot, seeds, and soil to start a garden at home!
Currently, we offer a wide variety of seeds, including herbs, veggies, fruits, pollinator flowers, and more!
In an effort to support local and native businesses, as well as help support the ecosystem by providing seeds native to California and help the pollinators, these are the current businesses we support.
