The recent post by the Washington State Department of Agriculture has received a lot of attention, and has generated a lot of questions from Oregonians. At this time, we don’t know of any reports of unsolicited seed being sent to Oregonians. However, if you or your neighbors/friends/family do receive unsolicited seed, please follow the advice of the USDA APHIS:

“USDA urges anyone who receives an unsolicited package of seeds to immediately contact their State plant regulatory official or APHIS State plant health director. Please hold onto the seeds and packaging, including the mailing label, until someone from your State department of agriculture or APHIS contacts you with further instructions. Do not plant seeds from unknown origins.”

And in case you want to reach out to someone local:
