Learn about Seeds

What’s happening with OSGATA v. Monsanto? Can I help organic growers or somehow be involved? Yes you can! You can help this important organization and keep up with the latest news at their website.

Suzanne Ashworth’s book Seed to Seed is a classic and an excellent seed saving reference.

We highly recommend Seed Savers Exchange excellent seed saving resources for information on how to save seeds, conduct home germination tests, store seeds, plant according to zone and more.

As Jeremy Cherfas states in the film: You can do this.

Purchasing Seeds

We encourage you to buy seeds from companies where you can trace your seed dollars. If you aren’t sure, ask the company “Where do your seeds come from? Do you purchase your seeds from companies such as Seminis or others that directly or indirectly support biotech companies? Do you know your supplier’s sources?” (Hudson Valley Seed Library and Seed Savers Exchange are two examples of trustworthy sources).

Want to start your own seed library? Richmond Grows has some excellent resources to help get you started.

Learn about Gardening & Growing

Check out Growing a Greener World – each episode focuses on compelling and inspirational people making a positive impact on the planet through gardening and shares DIY information that we can all use at home.
