DNA’s Elgin Harvest Market: Seeds to Grow


Start warming up to the idea of planning your summer garden!  Whether small or large, you and your garden will benefit when you buy seeds from Seed Savers Exchange to benefit the DNA’s Downtown Elgin Harvest Market.

The Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin (DNA), a non-for-profit volunteer based organization, has partnered with Seed Savers Exchange to offer 6 varieties of heirloom seed collections with four seed packets in each collection.  So whichever collection tickles your fancy –  from Big Salad Bowl to Container Magic or Kid’s favorite, Pizza Party, Heritage Garden or Flower Passion – you are sure to find one or more to be the perfect addition to your garden which will offer you fresh flowers and vegetables – right in your own back yard!  Each collection costs only $10 and 40%  goes directly to the Harvest Market!
