The Yoorala Street Community Garden has received a donation of 'older' seeds from organic seed distributor Eden Seeds.
Michelle Peile from the community garden said she made a request while she was putting in a personal order.
"I just mentioned that the community garden could use seeds that were close to or just past their use-by date, seeds that they could not really sell.
"We were amazed when the box arrived with 922 packets of seeds.
"There is a huge variety of seeds. While they are older seeds, it's still a very generous donation and gratefully received," Michelle said.
Eden Seeds' specialise in old traditional open pollinated varieties of vegetable seed, preferably old Australian varieties and organically or bio-dynamically grown where possible.
