Another amazing organization doing great things. Focus on Native American/Mexican seed varieties for desert regions. Great quality and very friendly and willing to share knowledge.

There are many other seed companies out there. There are a few others that sell organic and sustainable seeds that seem decent. Many seed companies just sell modern varieties that have been bred for commercial agriculture and have lost flavor, beauty, and diversity.

The aforementioned are the ones I use and support.

Please, whatever you do, avoid High Mowing Seeds. The owner of the company is a capitalist pig and has a history of not treating employees well. Has openly admitted he doesn't even eat/like vegetables and is just in the business to make money.

me showing up at monkeywrench books for the millionth time: yes hello where is the Anarchist Sceneโ„ข๏ธ

Finished batch for the night - herbal medicines and fire cider that now go into darkness to steep, and a bunch of salves. sorry if I'm overloading Sunbeam City with this project but I like to think is pretty solarpunk. We give away a good amount of this medicine to our friends and we put salve in the little kits we make for our homeless neighbors.

it's tincture making time! we're gonna take photos so we can post the progress :_earth: :_gaysparkle: :ecoanarchism_heart: ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ„๐Ÿง„

I haven't shown y'all my favorite lemon tree ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‹ it has variegated foliage and makes actual pink lemons. Also a mint that will hopefully trail out of its container and into the yard soon.
