This is my second year as a member. I’ve been saving my own seeds I bought from Sustainable Seed Co. for 3 years and truly enjoy this healthy hobby. I save hundreds, no thousands of dollars over the year through growing my own food and saving seeds. Grocery organic food prices would break my food budget. I buy in bulk regarding grain and legumes and grow my own food. Most of the food I eat I grow, what I don’t grow I buy or barter from local farmers
My Mother’s Mother grew gardens and roses most of her life. She lived a healthy 92 years and never stopped growing plants. During the depression our family survived on Grandma’s gardening, sewing, and cooking skills. Heartfelt gratitude to my Grandmother’s wisdom and my heritage.
