I really love this range; that you are helping preserve heritage varieties and also get a good base of veg to sow through the year. I only have a small patio but I have found the seeds germinate well and I can get a good amount from a small space so it’s pretty perfect imho.
Join our 1929 Endangered Veg club, inspired by the Franchi seeds 1929 seed catalogue - heritage and some endangered varieties with provenance and lost flavours.
You will receive 3 seasonal deliveries of heritage and endangered vegetable seeds that need our support to survive - the ideal gift. Sticking them in a seed bank is only good as an insurance policy, but the best way to preserve them is to grow them. If the small number of producers left cultivating these varieties make a profit, then they will continue to produce the varieties.
We know some of them are endangered thanks to Slow Food (the largest food movement on the planet) who have a register of foods, varieties and ingredients that are at risk, called 'The Ark of Taste' https://www.fondazioneslowfood.com/en/ark-of-taste-slow-food/
3 seasonal deliveries containing (varieties subject to change):
Spring (Sent Sent Feb/Mar):
Summer (Sent Apr/May):
Autumn (sent Jul/Aug):
This is a wonderful idea and I look forward with childlike anticipation and enthusiasm for the deliveries. I have yet to enjoy the vegetables themselves but the seedlings are doing well. I have told my friends all about it and they are keen to join too.
