Interested in old grains?

Check out our unique collection of old grains, especially wheats. All these dietary problems people seem to be facing with gluten have really sparked interest in einkorn wheat (the oldest type of wheat in cultivation, dating back about 10,000 years to the beginnings of agriculture).

Why save seed?

Seeds are our shared culture, which means seeds carry stories. A seed, is where the majority of our food begins, without seeds we would have very little to eat. You can be a steward of different varieties of plants by saving and sharing seeds as well as the stories that go with them. The rich biodiversity in our food systems is being lost to mono cropping and highly mechanized/industrialized agriculture but we can change that by all becoming seed savers!

Why all the varieties?

The amazing thing about growing plants is the diversity out there. There is no such thing as “normal” beans, or “normal” tomatoes! Scratch the word normal from your vocabulary. Each variety has it’s own character, just like people! There is resilience and stability in diversity. Tomatoes ranging in colour, shape, size, taste, texture, growth habit, you choose. Diversity keeps things fun, fascinating and exciting!
