Greta's Organic Gardens began as a market garden 20 years ago. While she had always saved and sold seeds, it took her 10 years to make the switch to seed production and three years to gain her organic certification. Today, Greta's Organic Gardens grows plants for their uniqueness in taste, appearance, colour and shape. She is committed to preserving our seed and plant heritage and it is no surprise that she depends on older varieties for the qualities she values. In 2008, she helped establish the Eastern Canada Organic Seed Growers Network to spread the skills of seed saving to others. She shares her skills with seed saving farmers in developing countries by volunteering with an international development agency.
