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 landrace seeds. You might find they are a better fit for your garden. For May 2016, we are featuring Grow Rare Seeds - The Rare Vegetable Seed Consortium a company that specializes in rare heirloom and landrace seeds. We are excited about The Rare Vegetable Seed Consortium because they travel the world looking for rare non-GMO seeds that they then work to preserve. Check out our Featured Seed Companies page to learn more about the 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.
