About Open Circle Seeds, an open source seed initiative member

“After decades of gardening, the vegetables began to call me to a deeper involvement in the future of food. “Grow our seeds,” they said. “Help us carry on, and we’ll adapt ourselves to your changing climate and provide you with the nutrients you need.” What a deal. I began my seed education, relying heavily on the resources of the Organic Seed Alliance, and started selling the seed I grew in 2009, as Laughing Frog Farm Seeds.”  Read more here https://www.opencircleseeds.com/about
