Sow True

As the winter weather finally breaks and we all scramble out into the sunshine to start planning out our Spring gardens I want to take a second to remind you that we Ashevillians have an amazing local seed company in our midst! Sow True Seed is committed to supporting sustainable seeding and only sell open pollinated and untreated seeds. They have a great organic and heirloom selection and you can take a peek at their online catalog here. I had the pleasure of doing a little work trade at Sow True HQ downtown for the Vance Elementary Peace Garden last week and I can't say enough about how awesome these folks are! They really care about what they do and work hard to build community here in Asheville.

You can find Sow True seeds at various stores like Earth Fare and the West Village Market (I'm sure you can call them for a full list of retailers) or order directly from them online, by phone or by mail.

Thanks so much Amy for helping us spread the word about our little, local seed company. For those interested, we've just received Kennebec, Red Pontiac and Yukon Gold certified seed potatoes which can be picked up on Saturdays. Watch on our website. And happy growing! Carol Koury,
