The collection includes organizational records, meeting minutes, membership records, internal office files, tax and financial records.  Series 2 records include files concerning projects internal to Seedcorn such as Alternative Energy, the Farm, Food, Land Program, North Country Notes, the Seedcorn newsletter Sprouts and external programs such as Community Energy Services, Cancer Action, Alternatives to War and Sunfeather Foundation.  Also included are many newsletters and publications from other groups involved in many of the same issues Seedcorn was concerned with and photographs of several Seedcorn events and a 1997 fire that heavily damaged the organization’s office in Potsdam.
