The Jacksonville Seed Exchange is a seed exchange website for the greater Jacksonville, Florida area. We accept only non-GMO, preferably organic and heirloom seeds. You can request 1 seed if you have none to exchange, or 3 seeds if you mail us 5. In either case, we greatly appreciate seeds sent back when harvested in order to keep our supplies available. Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope for seed delivery.

Simply email your request to jacksonvilleseedexchange@yahoo.com and I will send it out ASAP. There is no cost right now (except exotic seeds – cacao and naga jolokia pepper, specifically).

We accept donations through Paypal. Feel free to donate the cost of a stamp (or more if you’re feeling generous) and leave a note where to send the seeds to and what seeds you want.

We will stop mailing seeds when stock gets below 4 seeds. We will keep any requests on file for when we get more in stock.

Please try to specify what species the plant belongs, as well as the source, when mailing seeds.

The Jacksonville Seed Exchange is owned and run by local resident Mike Jewett.

Mailing address:

Jacksonville Seed Exchange

1471 Challen Ave.

Jacksonville, FL 32205

Seed donations always accepted, as are monetary donations, which will be used to purchase additional seeds to have in stock.
