ABOUT STAR SEEDS
Star Seeds is a community space in the back of Granola Girl Apothecary at 105 E. Washington Street in downtown Greencastle, Indiana. We are a grassroots group of community members dedicated to meeting the basic needs of the people in our area. If you're in crisis, need someone to talk to or a referral to local services, or just a snack and a change of clothes- we're here.

LITTLE FREE PANTRY PROJECT
Take what you need, give what you can.
Anyone can donate to, or take from, a Little Free Pantry. Boxes are being placed throughout Putnam County, Indiana. Non-perishable food, toiletries, and school supplies are always needed! Consider adopting a busy pantry, or contact us for plans to build your own pantry in under-served areas.
Star Seeds is a collection site for the Little Free Pantry Project. We help stock the downtown free pantries and provide a community fridge for perishable items.
Building and stocking free pantries is a great way to get kids and students involved directly in community aid. When young people see the pantries getting used, they begin to realize the extent of local food insecurity.
Public aid + public art
Little Free Pantries can function as pieces of public art that can be enjoyed by everyone. Stay tuned for portable community garden beds that will add produce to our collection of free pantries in 2023!
Volunteers are always needed to source food for Little Free Pantries, distribute the food stored at Star Seeds, and to make sure the pantries are clean and well maintained. Contact us for more information about volunteering.
Want to add a pantry?
Contact us for plans and information about building a Little Free Pantry in an under-served area. This makes a great project for a retired builder or a budding scout!

All donations go to stock the free pantries downtown and provide food and bottled water for people that use the Star Seeds space.
We accept small donations of good quality, seasonally appropriate men's and women's clothing and shoes. Please donate kid's and baby clothes to CareNet. We also accept blankets, hats and scarves in the winter. Please bring your donations in during open hours. We would love your help hanging up and organizing donations!
We accept unexpired, unopened food during open hours. We can accept a small amount of perishable food for the community fridge. Please consider bringing in food and snacks that can be eaten here, by people without access to a stove (or, possibly, a can opener or untensils). Microwavable, single serving high protein meals are appreciated. Cookies are always welcome too! Bottled water, coffee pods, and creamer are in high demand.
