Early Spring Harvest

Many of you are now reaping the rewards of your early spring harvest with baskets full of crisp greens, lettuces and kales, along with earthy cool season root crops like radishes.

Or, tried blending spinach and frozen bananas for a surprisingly delicious treat?

Groundswell International and Sow True Seed

This planting season, Sow True Seed is excited to partner with Groundswell International to share healthy seeds and support local seed systems. Groundswell is a non-profit organization that works in partnership, locally and globally, to strengthen rural communities to build healthy farming and local food systems from the bottom up.

Beyond partnering with organizations in the United States, Groundswell also works with local organizations in Burkina Faso, Ecuador, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, and Mali to spread ecological farming practices, promote farmer-led innovation and farmer-to-farmer learning, and rebuild local food systems.
