2020 Donations That Made A Difference

Every year, Renee's Garden donates seeds to a wide variety of organizations and educational programs worldwide that strive to improve social, economic and health conditions, and promote sustainable organic gardening. We also encourage retailers to donate unsold Renee's Garden seeds to local non­profit organizations at the end of the season. We are pleased to share just a few successful outcomes.
