Regionally Inspired Seed Packet Art
We are growing, selecting, and adapting seeds for the unique conditions of the high desert and mountain bio-regions. We want that regional focus to shine through in everything we do! We produce hardy seed for (you) hardy souls of the west and beyond to ensure your farms and gardens are richly abundant now and in the future.
Wanting this ethos to shine through is one reason we partnered with artist Rosie Carter to re-envision our seed packet art and give it the essence of the high desert. It has been a dream of ours to use our little seed company to support local artists. Namely because in our opinion: seeds, food, agri- culture, and art all go hand in hand. Through this collaboration with Rosie we have found a kindred spirit in our appreciation of the beauty of the west. In a 3”x3” space she has captured the essence of the high desert and the heart of our efforts to grow seed with a sense of place.
Getting to the heart of the, “the tenacious beauty of out-of-the-way places” is at the heart of her work and at the root of ours.

More about the artist:
Rosie is a visual artist and printmaker. She lives and works in the Four Corners region of southwestern Colorado where she explores its history and rugged rocky beauty in her everyday life and work. Conjuring up ideas and convictions pulled from this remote desert landscape, she spins them into pieces of art ~ from small functional notecards and notebooks, to prints on recycled tin and t-shirts, to mixed media print installations and recycled metal sculptures. Working with screen printing and mixed media at her studio, or letterpress at the Mancos Common Press where she’s the Shop Manager, Rosie makes art pieces that are beautiful, useful and unique to her creative vision. They capture the tenacious beauty of out-of-the-way places with delicacy and grace.
