Weeds and Deeds is an all-volunteer grassroots organization. The folks that do this work do it out of love and a drive to help our community. That means our biggest expenses are the supplies we need to make and distribute herbal remedies, maintain our gardens, and share educational materials .
Donating money directly gives us the flexibility to purchase the resources we need to help folks in the community in ways that are most effective at the moment. You can make a direct cash donation through these services:
Make a one-time donation through your CashApp account
Make a one-time or recurring donation with your debit/credit card or PayPal account.

Gardening and Plants
At the core of our work are the plants. The most sustainable way to get the herbs we need to heal our communities is to grow them right here. We welcome amature and experienced gardeners alike who have plants, seeds or cuttings to share. We can help you connect with community gardens or individual folks growing to support Weeds and Deeds projects.
Please reach out and tell us what you have and we’ll do our best to make it part of our work.
If you’re interested in helping grow herbs, check out our Community Growers program!
- Compost (any type)
- Pine Straw (can be naturally sourced)
- Plant cuttings
We distribute a lot of herbs to folks. We can always use more pots. The black plastic ones you buy plants in are perfect. We’ll take any size but need 2-6 inch pots, seedling trays and multipacks the most.
- Potted plants
- Tools for gardening
Wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, gloves, hoes, yard bags, etc.
Educational Materials and Printing Supplies
Part of our mission is herbal education. That’s not just teaching classes but also getting books and zines in the hands of those seeking to learn more.
- Books on a variety of subjects for our Little Green Library project or permanent library
- Printer paper
