  1. Could you please add my small seed company to your website.
    Mountain Seed Co.
    Slocan Valley, BC, Canadian Grown seed. Sustainably grown rare, and heirloom open pollinated garden seed varieties.
    Site 6 Comp 8 RR1 Winlaw, BC V0G 2J0
    No website yet. Our catalog is found on facebook. Sold through local stores, and BC seed exchanges.

    • I will do that Kylie. I use to live in the Slocan Valley. Thinking of moving back in fact: lots of GMO free zones up there!

  2. A little off topic perhaps, but a request for you to consider the ethics of buying things like designer clothes. Do try and consider, for example, the materials the item is manufactured with, the conditions of the factories where they’re made and the green credentials of retailers. And try to share instead of discarding. Thanks!!!!

  3. Hello,
    thanks for posting the list – it looks similar to the Seeds of Diversity Canada list. Clear Sky Farm in Eastern BC also grows & sells Heritage Garlic Seed Varieties
    http://www.clearskyfarm.com.

    Thanks!

  4. Greetings!

    I would love it if you could add my small seed company to your list. Goddess Grown Heirlooms.

  9. Recently a developer next door smashed down a charming Arts and Crafts house to build a truly ugly 3 story box.Along with the demo went a thirty foot apple tree.It was often the resting spot of Coopers Hawk and Owls.Along with the privacy and shade this glorious tree provided went the old breed of apple I have been told was Something(cannot remember)King.In honor of this giant beauty I am compelled to replace it in my garden.Does anyone have knowledge of this tree and where to find one?
