The Victory Gardens for Peace Mini-Farm is a non-profit seed bank located at the Stanford Inn in Mendocino. The fruit born from the partnership of Ecology Action and the Stanford Inn continues to inspire and enrich the lives in our community and abroad. The garden has been a place of learning for people from around the world and the site of some very important research and development in the growing of soil, food, and community. The garden also hosts several training programs, internships, and apprenticeships. Victory Gardens for Peace Seed Bank Exchange connects gardeners and farmers through the saving of seeds and offers over 200 varieties of rare, locally adapted heirloom seed grown out by our community, available to anyone free of charge.
