At Going to Seed, we provide gardeners and farmers with the knowledge, skills and resources to grow locally adapted, genetically diverse crops, using traditional selection methods enhanced by ongoing learning and experimentation.
We envision a world where everyone is empowered to grow food that heals the body, the soul, and the planet. Together we create a resilient and environmentally adaptive food system that works with nature and can withstand its unpredictability.
Our video and text-based courses cover the importance of genetic diversity, cross-pollination and breeding basics, seed selection and saving.

Read the book that started it all
Joseph Lofthouse's book Landrace Gardening will change the way you think about growing food. Let biodiversity and cross pollination allow selection for crops that thrive under ever changing conditions, while lessening the need for costly inputs, like poisons, fertilizer, materials, and labor. Less labor means more time for friends, family, music, dancing, or whatever it is that brings you joy.
