UVM Seed Research Project

Dear Vermont Resident,

Do you produce seeds for your own garden, to share, or to sell? If so, we are interested in learning more about you. We are a team of researchers at the University of Vermont studying seed production and exchange in Vermont. Our goal is to highlight all the activity that is happening within our state that provides an alternative to large, out-of-state seed companies. At this point, we are preparing to conduct a survey in the next year but because no research has been done on Vermont seed systems before, we first need to find out who is participating in the production and distribution of seeds in the state. So, if you grow seeds for yourself, to share, or to sell and want to contribute in the future to this research study, please email us at [email protected]:

Best regards,

The UVM Seeds Research Team
