From their about page (Seeds for the People!
Our generation has collectively inherited an enormous wealth of diversity in our seeds. Nearly 1,000 generations of farmers before us saved seed from their best plants, making constant selections and breeding countless varieties adapted to their particular places and purposes. Truly co-evolution. Whether going by the names of heirloom, heritage or open-pollinated; these are the people’s seeds. They’re powerful and must remain in the people’s hands!
As agriculture became more centralized and homogenized in the 20th century, people moved away from the land, and our diversity of seeds began to be replaced by an agribusiness industry all about uniformity and control. Where once farmers and communities held full control of their seed, we’re now in an era of patented seeds and even criminalized seed saving.
But so many of our seeds are still here! We have in our hands all the abundance we need to thrive. So lets save seeds for our communities, lets collaborate with friends and neighbours. Lets re-localize, both our seeds and our lives. Lets learn to partner with our plant allies, and realize the near limitless beauty and bounty in our gardens and in nature. Lets reclaim our agrarian inheritance and lets save the seeds! )
This site has some truly different seeds to offer, all I can say is do not buy them out of some of the really rare ones.. save a package for me.. LOL
Ps, for my readers on the east coast.. this site is even a touch more exciting as a number of these plants have been either found suited or pre-landraced for your climate..
