For generations, our ancestors saved seeds from their best crops, creating a breathtaking diversity in the varieties of food available today. But in the past century, seed saving has transferred to corporations. In the process, the values of diversity and foresight have been exchanged for uniformity and profit.

Terminator seeds and genetically modified seeds are becoming an increasing threat to our local and international ecosystems. By purchasing and saving organic, heirloom, and/or heritage seeds, you support a growing movement to maintain and restore the diversity of fruit and vegetable varieties.
