Food prices are going up and biodiversity is going down, so let's grow our own food from heirloom seed lines. Pollinators love these plants, too. Species available: Sunflowers, Pole Beans, Corn, Squash, Red Clover.
Sign up here to get FREE heirloom seeds! Plus red clover seed! Choose from the seed list and/or make a special request of a type of beans, corn, squash, and/or sunflowers to get exactly what you want to plant in your 2023 garden.
Choose up to 5 varieties.
Bags of seeds will be healthy portions. Share, share alike!
Seeds will be available starting in March 2023 in Evansville, IN.
Experiment with the ancient Indigenous technique of intercropping with the Three Sisters: pole beans, squash, and corn grown all together in a plot. Do an Internet search for "growing 3 sisters" to get more information about how beans, squash, and corn support each other structurally and chemically when grown and eaten together.
Sunflowers are beautiful! All of these sunflowers are good eating, too.
Red clover contains estrogen, fixes nitrogen from the air into the soil, and serves as a living mulch for plantings.
Most of the seeds on offer here are from seed lines stewarded into modern times since time immemorial by Indigenous North American farmers.
