I am thinking about what seeds to get for this year. Usually, I get seedlings already planted up in May but this year I want to plant more heirloom varieties and you just can't get those out of a regular garden store (although my co-worker always tried very hard to get some heirloom tomatoes in but customers did not want to pay the higher price.) I think I shall use this seed supplier  as he is local and not just a seed supplier but also a seed sanctuary. Here is their mission statement:

  • We are a charitable organization dedicated to the health
    and vitality of the earth through the preservation and promotion of
    heritage seeds.

  • We are committed to maintaining, evaluating
    and keeping records for all the edible, medicinal and useful crops that
    can be grown in Canada.

  • We are a learning centre and network encouraging local food and seed production.
