Our motto is "For the Medicine of Tomorrow" because I believe in investing in a holistic, sustainable and grasssroots approach to human and planetary health. My offerings are an invitation to reclaim your birth right to work with plants and plant medicine. Seeds are magical. They literally hold genetic material of the future. To be able to hold that in your hand is quite empowering!
The simple act of saving and starting seeds is one that will deepen your sense of independence from a system that has failed many in terms of access to healthcare and healthy food, while also shifting your attention to your interdependence with the natural world. Full disclosure... the feeling you get from raising a garden from seed may be so addictive that you have to start a seed business to justify the obsession ;-)
This obsession turned business is the work I offer to help us start down a new path. Simple solutions are needed to complex problems so that everyone can play a role in shaping our future. By working with seeds and plants you are joining a growing movement, one with mother nature leading the way. Our role is to humbly care take for her and to show deep gratitude for the bountiful harvests she provides.
Seed security means many small scale sources of seed from sustainably grown and locally adapted plants...not mass produced seed, grown overseas in fossil fuel dependent systems, and distributed through a chain of large scale companies. Proof that anything is possible through collaboration, I was blessed to be able to create this land based business without owning land thanks to a supportive community that believes in this work. All of our seed offerings were proudly harvested from plants, sustainably and ethically grown by the following caretakers:
*Erin O'Hara of Turtle Hill Native Plants in East Montpelier, VT
*Michael Pilarski of Friends of the Trees Society in Port Hadlock, WA
*Melanie and Jeff Carpenter of Zack Woods Herb Farm in Hyde Park, VT
