Lettuce, Greens and Tomato Seedlings- enough seedlings for a large market garden and thinnings your family can eat while the outdoor garden progresses. For the hardiest vegetables seedlings and seed production we routinely employ bareroot transplanting from nursery rows such as these.

We will have more Greens and Rootcrops seeds listed after another round of field testing, so dont be in a rush and bring your best ever four season harvest home with judicious planning and timing. As we go forward it will be all about maxxing out the growing season in the Northstate in spite of what could be another serious drought. That’s a tremendous challenge!

We can arrange varying levels of seed support, including free shipping, bulk and additional seed varieties. in support of local food security, community gardening and most importantly seed saving. We also want to encourage more local growing and marketing with technical support as our next economy emerges.

Our long term focus is to keep regenerating as much of our extensive seed archive as possible. We will be posting more content here soon! Virtual work trades are also welcomed.
