MORE ON WHY - This is a critical time in the history of small seed companies as they are rapidly being purchased by large corporations. For the first time in human history, the genetic material carried in seeds is diminishing due to market forces rather than increasing through the abundant generosity of nature. Learn how to grow and save seed, and who you can buy from to support diversity, fairness and non-gmo food. Purchase heirloom and open pollinated seed that reproduces true to form. Talk with other gardeners, trade seeds and come together in celebration of the potential we hold.
