From our forest garden to yours

Buy organic, open pollinated plant seeds

Grow your own trees, shrubs, vegetables, flowers and more.

We collect and keep our own seeds for planting next year. Not only does this reduce the cost of growing a garden but it allows for an even greater connection with the food we eat and the ongoing cycle of growth, reproduction and renewal.

Also, by careful selection it is possible to guide the evolution of the plant species, developing new strains or varieties that are better suited to the local climate, soil conditions and other site specific variables.
