Now that the longest night of the year has passed, spring will be here in a few months. Last week I placed our project seed order split between Dan Jason’s Salt Spring Seed Company and one of my favorite seed-companies, William Dam in Ontario.  All the seeds are from open-pollinated, tried and true vegetable varieties.  Dan and myself both have experience in both growing and saving seed from most these varieties excepting the squash.

Once the orders arrive, the project will contact interested dedicated growers and then start distributing the seeds.  Basically the seeds include standard and heirloom varieties of  beets, chard, peas, beans and squash.
