Organic Heirlooms Nursery

Organic Heirlooms Nursery

PEACE Farm Organic Heirloom seedlings are made up of more than 100 varieties grown at PEACE Farm or from seed saved in the valley and seed sourced from quality organic seed companies, suited to the local climate and conditions.  All seedlings for sale are in season now, ready to plant.

This day and age gardeners and eaters are looking for the freedom to grow and eat produce that is grown without chemicals for which I have been providing this service since 2006.       

Seedsaver

With a focus to provide a large range of locally adapted seed, I am always looking for experienced or interested seed savers to grow out, document and save seed to our favourite vegetable and herbs. Interested? Consider a workshop, volunteer, do an internship or contact Matt.
