Garden Seeds

Heirloom, Landrace, and Adaptive Seed Companies all on one site >

Making the World a better place one seed at a time.

Garden Seeds, working to promote heirloom seed companies that sell non-gmo seeds.  We want to make it easier to find small, local heirloom vegetable seed companies that specialize in landrace* or heirloom seeds.  Local seed companies may have seeds adapted to the local growing conditions of your heirloom vegetable garden or flower garden.

 

Each month Garden Seeds features an heirloom seed company.  Some of these seed companies sell landrace garden seeds as well as heirloom seeds.  We encourage you to learn about the benefits of landrace seeds.  You might find they are a good fit for your garden and your family's food security needs.  For September 2017, we are featuring Rare Heirloom Seeds - Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.  They were the first Seed Company we featured back in January, 2016 before we were ranked high enough on search engines for anyone to find us.  .We are featuring them again because we feel they work tirelessly to promote the use of Heirloom seeds here in the United States of America.

 

We are excited to have so many niche garden seed companies listed on our site.  We hope that by listing all these garden seed companies you will find some that meet your needs.  Check out our Featured Seed Companies page to learn more about the landrace and heirloom seed companies we have featured.

 

*Landrace seeds are adaptive seeds.  Landrace seeds have diverse genetics that allow them to adapt to different growing conditions.  Landrace and heirloom seeds are non-gmo by definition.  We at Garden Seeds believe that landrace seeds hold the genetics to ensure food security.

Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) is and organization that is working to see that we are free to use seeds as we wish. Open Source Seed Initiative has three interconnected objectives:

  1. Open Source Seed Initiative is a new way to save and exchange seed that ensures the seed will remain free of patents, licenses, and other restrictions on freedom to use. This method of exchange involves commitment to an open source seed Pledge.
  2. Open Source Seed InitiativeI maintains a list of crop varieties that have been pledged as “freed seed” and provides a link to sources of seed for those varieties.
  3. Open Source Seed Initiative works to raise awareness of the importance of keeping seeds unencumbered from legal restrictions and free to be used, shared, saved, bred, and sold.

We at Garden Seeds do not understand why seeds can be patented. We believe that seeds should be free to share and use as you like. We are working to promote and save genetic diversity in seeds and we believe that it will reduce the risk of world wide famine in the future. We will add Open Source Seed Initiative's logo by seed companies on our lists that have taken the OSSI pledge.
