Day 3: Seed Saving Garden

     

Day 3 of 12 days of Christmas

Did you know that Tucker House runs a certified organic, heritage seed saving garden? A perfect fit for a historic environmental centre! Seed saving preserves biodiversity and helps develop varieties better adapted to our soil, climate and local growing conditions. 

Our seed garden was started in 2015 as a result of passionate, volunteer work. The garden, though small, successfully yields about 25,000 seeds per year. We’ve managed to save heritage varieties gardened by locals for generations. We taste our vegetables to make sure the quality remains in the seed gene for every future plant! We are proud to be a part of a community of gardeners who preserve the past for a greener future! 

We want to share our gardening passion with you! Our unique heritage seed varieties are for sale all year round. We have over 20 different varieties available! Check out our website for a detailed description of each variety here

Seeds cost $3.50 per package or 3 for $10. Email community@maisontuckerhouse.ca to order!
