We’re excited to let you know that Saanich Organics adventures in seed production have been going well. A few years ago, we started getting excited about seed. We are very concerned about narrowing corporate control of our seed supply and about the lack of regionally adapted,
organically grown seed. We decided to become part of the solution by starting “Seeds of the Revolution” (Saanich Organics seed).
From the start, our first priority was producing top quality seed. We read, we attend workshops, and we continue to learn all we can about good plant breeding. We are grateful for the excellent mentorship provided by Patrick Steiner of Stellar Seeds. With our careful attention to isolation distances (to prevent crossing), thinning, maintaining adequate populations, selecting the best plants, cleaning, and germination testing, we’re confident that our seed is commercial quality.
