Wild Seed Project

Our mission is to inspire people to take action and join us in increasing the presence of native plants grown from wild seed.

Our vision is that people create and repopulate landscapes to be abundant with native plants that safeguard wildlife habitat, support biodiversity, and mitigate the effects of climate change.

What We Do

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2014, Wild Seed Project ethically collects and sells seeds of wild and uncultivated forms of native plants and educates the public through our interactive website, engaging events, and annual magazine, Wild Seed. We share information and bring people together around native plant conservation and horticulture to engage citizens in promoting native plant populations and restoring biodiversity.

As Wild Seed Project enters its sixth year of operations in 2020, our board and staff are excited to announce our new Strategic Impact Plan, developed to maximize our impact in the coming decade as we face the unprecedented, urgent, and entwined challenges of the climate crisis and biodiversity loss. The plan details how we will accomplish our vision of rewilding the landscapes of Maine — building on our work, our network of inspired supporters, and vast repository of knowledge.

We welcome you to peruse the plan and hope you will find one or more initiatives in which you would like to be involved, as a financial supporter, as a volunteer, or both!
