SEEDS would not be here without the generous support from our community, and we Thank you!

So we ask you to consider making a donation to our annual  fundraiser/SWAPAPALOOZA!  on Thurs evening May 3 at The Cooperage. This community event is growing every year and offers a great opportunity to reach a larger customer base, and help SEEDS at the same time!

SEEDS is celebrating our 10th anniversary, and this year’s event will be very special!

We feature a silent and live auction. Guests bid on items donated by our local businesses and individuals. Items in the past have included gift certificates, basket-fulls of goodies, tool boxes, gardening supplies, office supplies, massages, weekend get-a-ways, dinners, artwork, beer growlers, electronics, concert tickets, wood carvings and so much more! It is fun just to see the assortment!

Please email or call (570) 245 – 1256 to arrange a donation..and mark the calendar for this fun event for you and your employees.

Thank you so much for supporting SEEDS!

Ed Zygmunt attended the SEEDS Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Solar Workshop this past June and took the leap in October after getting approval from Claverack Rural Electric Co-op, his utility in northwestern Lackawanna county. In November he completed the installation of eleven 305watt panels for 3.4kw of total capacity, with future plans to install 10 more panels. Ed says: “The do-it-yourself solar course gave me to confidence to finally say to myself ‘I can do this’. With their hands-on DIY class, SEEDS instructors Jack Barnett and Blair Buselli provided me the simple guidance I needed to finally take the plunge into renewable energy. Amber and I are eternally grateful to SEEDS for helping us carry our long-held dream 93 million miles to capture clean energy from the sun.”

Congratulations to Amber and Ed!
SEEDS is hoping to hold our June 2018 DIY Solar Workshop actually on-site at a local non-profit where SEEDS volunteers will be installing a solar PV system. Look for more information on that coming soon!
