This is not a “How To Grow Seeds” manual. Such information already exists and still more is being produced. A resource list at the end of this book details some readily accessible print and on-line resources about the how-to of seedgrowing. Beyond the mechanics of growing and harvesting seeds however, there are other considerations for the farmer seeking to incorporate seedgrowing into their farming systems. The strength of this book lies in the first-hand experiences of a number of growers who have shared how seed growing has become a part of their farm economy and ecology. The insights they have gained, and the lessons learned are useful for any BC or Canadian farmer looking to grow seeds and contribute to the overall strength of a successful and sustainable local agriculture.
