Ed Hume Seeds & Plant a Row 

Ed Hume Seeds has been involved in the Plant A Row for the Hungry program  since 2002.  Since we started participating, we've donated at least 10,000 packets of seed (mostly carrots) in support of the program every year.

Annually, we distribute:

  • 2,000 to 3,000 packets directly through our website.
  • 2,000 to 3,000 packets with our online and catalog orders.
  • 4,000 to 6,000 packets to Garden Writers to handout at lectures and appearances.
Additionally, we distribute approximately 1,000,000 packets of year-old seed to international charities to help end world hunger and varying amounts to US projects.  Last year, we donated almost a ton of seed to charities in New Orleans to help with rebuilding.  Several years ago, we partnered with a local grocery chain to give away PAR packets in our seed racks.

If you have participated in the program in the past, "Thank You!".  We'd love to hear any stories about PAR that you'd  like to share.  Send them to: jeff@humeseeds.com and we'll share some of the best ones on this page in the future.

Thank you for helping the GWAA and Ed Hume Seeds in this worthwhile project.
