Seed pickup: January 23 and 24
Seed return: February 6 and 7

Your response to this opportunity to serve has been incredible! All 300 seed kits have been requested and registration is full. We want to thank everyone so very much for your support of this event—especially this year. We ask that you continue to keep this project in your prayers as we prepare to send our kits out with volunteers and as they are packed and returned safely to church over the next few weeks. In years past, we have packed anywhere from 190,000 to 202,000 seed envelopes—this year we will pack a record-breaking 300,000. Thank you Peachtree community for your service and prayers for our partners in Malawi and Liberia.

We invite you to join us for the 7th annual Seeds of Hope packing event! The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted people here in our community and across the world. This is our opportunity to serve those in Malawi and Liberia by helping them battle food insecurity that has only increased with the pandemic.

Seeds of Hope is one of our church community’s favorite events—in the past we have welcomed over 1,300 volunteers to participate. Seeds of Hope 2021 will look different as we are unable to gather in large groups in the Fellowship Hall. This year, we will gather in small, safe groups as families, friends and Belong communities around your own tables. We are preparing Seeds of Hope kits that you will register to complete. Instructions will be supplied (including a video) with each kit along with all you need to pack 1,000 envelopes.
