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 good fit for your garden. For June 2016, we are featuring Heritage Harvest Seed a seed company that specializes in rare heritage/heirloom seeds that they preserve and sell to the public. We are excited about Heritage Harvest Seed because they are a Canadian heritage/heirloom seed company that specializes in rare non-GMO tomato and bean seeds. (Basswood loves collecting beans and any seed company that lists over ninety heritage/heirloom beans deserves to be listed.) 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.
