I used to have a plot in a community garden and now I have a back yard.  When I buy seeds for my garden, I never need ALL of them, so I start extras for my guerilla gardening plots.  If you don't have a stash of your own seeds around the house, try freecycle and see if there are other traditional gardeners who have extra seeds on hand they'd love to donate to you.

Most of my seeds are wildflowers collected from meadows (my uncle is a farmer).

I've received a bunch of free seeds from Gardenweb members!  They do require that you to send an SASE (preferably with some type of bubble wrap for padding).

You will have to join Gardenweb, in order to post your request for free seeds in their forums... but it's FREE! :D

Also... don't forget to save seeds from your favorite heirloom or Open Pollinated (OP) fruit and veg that are available at your local farmer's market! ;)
