Our SEED COMMONS is a living collection of locally adapted open-pollinated seeds. Open-pollinated plants grow like their parents. They produce seeds that can be legally grown, saved and shared. They are the foundation of our food system
Did you know that you can produce viable bean seeds from just one plant! The same is true for squash, tomatoes lettuce and some of the flowers in our Seed Commons!
We put together a “Seeds of Hope” collection of bean, squash, tomato, lettuce and flower seeds for you to grow out in small and large spaces food and seeds this summer!
The collection also includes one variety of beet and one variety of kale that most of you will grow for food. We hope that many of you will also learn how to save seeds from them even though it is a bit more of a challenge!
We wanted to get the “Seeds of Hope” collection to you right away so that you could start growing the tomatoes now. Given the way that things are unfolding in Kingston today we decided to stay at home and start the tomatoes for you. We will find a way to safely connect before planting time. Our seeds will also be available as individual packets when we do!
We hope that you can find the peace and joy that comes from planting seeds and connecting with the Earth in these turbulent times.
