SeedWise Philosophy

SeedWise is a marketplace enabling seed farmers to sell directly to home gardeners, giving a greater level of choice to the customer and higher income to the farmer. Gardeners can find growers in their bio-region, selecting heirloom seeds or drought tolerant varieties of their favorite crops. Gardeners can plant with confidence, knowing exactly where their seeds were grown; the names and faces of those farmers, and the heritage of the breed.

Just like your local Farmer's Market, SeedWise provides the chance to connect, learn and build resilience in communities across the country.

 

We see a world of small-scale farmers being the backbone of our food supply.

We dream of 1000s of unique varieties of our favorite fruits and vegetables.

We dream of gardens growing in place of front-lawns.

Know your Farmer, Know your Seed.
