Sweet CornThere is a lot of diversity in this sweet corn mix. It contains high-carotene kernels, kernels with many shades of color, and some with very large kernels! I don’t ever grow sweet corn, but this year is the year for me because this mix is exciting! I hope this is the year for your sweet corn adventures to begin, too, if they haven’t already. 

Grain Corn: Wow, another year of incredible shapes, colors, sizes, and locations coming together to create this mix. All I can say is, “It’s all here.”

Popcorn: Finally, we have a modest popcorn mix. Despite its modesty, it contains significant diversity. Some of this mix is  Chapalote and a special mix from Larry Morris who experiments with crossing corn with teosinte. He said the parents of the seeds he donated for this mix were synced with flowering teosinte and hopes crosses will show up. I also included a little bit of teosinte. Plant early if you’re in areas with short seasons. 

Packets contain approximately 100 seeds.

Are seeds really free?

Our mission is to make diverse seeds available to everyone. Although the seeds are free, you will need to pay for shipping. In addition, we ask you to consider making a donation to cover program costs. This allows us to make seed free for those who need it.

When will I get my seeds?

Seeds will ship within a week of ordering. This program is run by dedicated and hardworking volunteers.  Going to Seed is not a seed company. You may receive packages that have less than the stated number of seeds, germination rates may not meet the federal standards, shipping may be slower than you prefer, or there may be any other number of unanticipated glitches. Please be patient with us as we improve the standards over time.

How are seeds packaged?

Seeds are packed in moisture proof, 100% compostable materials. We recommend saving this packet to fill and send back to the program.

About the Seed Steward

Hi, I'm Lowell. I live in North Florida where summers are rainy, hot, and humid, with high bug pressure. These conditions are a challenge for many crops, so I turned to the growing styles of adaptation agriculture and natural farming. I view the results of these styles as a journey in abundance and diversity -- the myriad ways in which the world expresses itself -- and enjoy saving seeds from a variety of crops, with a focus on dry legumes and grains.
