Consider Partnering With Us in Our Historical Research and Seed Variety
Do you like what we do? Do you want to
know how you can partner in our seed preservation work? Here are a few ideas how you can help
make a difference.
If you are reading this page, you probably are already one of our many loyal
supporters and are aware of our mission
of seed variety preservation.
The primary method of
supporting our preservation work comes directly from you purchasing
and growing seeds from our website or
order catalog. For that, we are greatful. However, if you are
in a position to help beyond that and feel inclined to send something extra,
you can do so
at this link.
Another way to
help financially is an idea that a long-time supporter of ours thought up.
Every year when she orders the seeds for her garden, instead of buying seeds
to share, she purchases
gift certificates! She says, "Gift
certificates are a good gift and a great way to introduce
to your gardening friends." We couldn't agree more.
Other Forms of
financial support is critical to the health of any organization, but there
are so many other ways you can help that do not cost you anything but some
time and energy. Some opportunities will even earn you purchasing credit
at our store!

arises, let them know your favorite seed company. Even when we are

We were contacted by a customer of ours on Long Island, New York asking if
we would be interested in him spreading the word about us at his local seed
swap event . . . you can guess what we said! I created a coupon that he
could hand out to folks, and using extra seed that he had purchased, this is
what he told us he did to help spread the word:
1) I made a photocopy of your seed packets and after crossing out the amount
of seeds on the front, stapled it to the baggies of seeds and included the
coupon to each and every bag I put out on the display table.
2) I also handed out full sheets of the coupons to people who had family and
friends who might be interested in Victory Seeds®.
3) I was interviewed by the local newspaper and told them that the seeds I
brought were specifically from victoryseeds.com.

Although this might sound like a self-defeating practice for a seed company
to encourage, we hope that it cements the fact that we are
mission driven and
not fiscally motivated!
Seed Saving is key to ensuring that a variety survives. Learn
and practice proper techniques. Along with you personally preserving a
variety, you also are saving money and at the same time, practicing a
primary freedom - the ability to raise food without relying on any person or

with keeping other
seeds available to home gardeners, we also work with families to ensure that
beloved favorites are not lost to time. Over the years, we have been
contacted by people with seed varieties that their ancestors have grown for
may generations but they might be to the point where there is no one left
