We Believe...

Growing and saving seed builds connection — connection with land, soil, water, life, death, and culture. Seed helps us become self-sufficient, provides nourishing food, and connects us to our ancestors, who carefully cared for the plants that sustain us today. We believe connection is fundamental to maintaining biodiversity, creating a vibrant community, supporting a resilient environment, and providing a world full of diverse flavors.

I love your seeds and they work so well in our crazy banana belt weather here at 9000 feet. One of your slicer tomatoes survived a few frost I was amazed!
