About the Louisville Seedbank

The Louisville Seedbank project is a pilot program by Beargrass Thunder and Louisville Grows using donated seeds from various non-profits, business groups, and community residents in the city. The goal is to cultivate varieties of native plants and edible food that is resistant to the Urban Heat Island Effect and can grow in the microclimates of urban Louisville neighborhoods.


For now, the pilot is focused on the Smoketown, Shelby Park, and Russell neighborhoods with the hope of eventually replicating the project city-wide. We want checking out seeds to be as easy to checking out books from a library. Eventually we can find which seeds and cultivars of plants survive Louisville's wild temperature swings and withstand the Urban Heat Island Effect.
