Heirlooms in the Learning Garden at SMU
An Heirloom Seed Library at SMU
There is interest in creating an Heirloom Seed Library at St. Martin's. So this season we are going to grow Heirloom varieties. We will grow, harvest and process the seeds for saving, and start our library. Heirloom varieties are often very colorful, hardy and disease resistant. Heirloom varieties are varieties of vegetables and flowers that have been grown and passed down for many generations from one gardener to another. They are also available from select seed companies specializing in Heirloom seed and from some non-profits and foundations.
