The foodstamp program covers seeds and plant starts for home gardening. However, finding a place that sells these isn't easy. Nurseries and garden centers that I've called are not setup for accepting that type of payments, and the farmer's market is not yet open for the season. Very limited seeds are available through local grocery stores, but in searching through those I've only found a fraction of the different types of seeds that I want to plant. I don't have any seeds to exchange, because this is my first year getting started with a home garden so seed-sharing groups aren't going to be very helpful.
Does anyone know of anyplace in the portland/metro area (preferably westside) that sells seeds and plant starts, accepts foodstamps, and carries a decent variety of edibles?
