Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico and completely destroyed its small farms and family gardens. Seeding Relief is working to help those farms regrow and flourish, providing the island with fresh produce and food security. So far, the project has shipped 8,000 pounds of seeds to Puerto Rico. The seeds will go to small farms and community gardens. Seeds are being distributed in Puerto Rico from December to February 2017.
