How does it work?
The gift box with seeds will be sent to you by mail. Included in the gift box is a certificate of your support to NordGen.
The Nordic countries are facing a near future with climate changes and a need for plants with new properties. The seeds that we keep in NordGen’s gene bank contain possibilities to develop new plants that adapt better to the climate of the future. When you buy a gift box with seeds, you support NordGen’s work with conservation and sustainable use of plants and seeds. When you plant these seeds, you contribute to the conservation of our common Nordic heritage. Share your experiences with other Nordic leisure plant-growers with #nordgen.
The gift box will be ready to be posted from NordGen from Monday 25 November 2019.
