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