Seeds in Store

Did you know that the Roulant Farm produces organic seeds? This will be our third year as a small-scale seed producer. We supply Ferme Co-operative Tourne-sol with seeds for sweet peppers, tomatoes, beans, and mustard!

We currently have a variety of local organic seeds on sale at the General Store. You can take a peek at this certified organic seed selection to get a sense of what’s available.

We’ve begun planting our seedlings in the greenhouse; you can start your own seedlings at home to jump start the season and make the most of the northern growing season.

Local Seeds

Growing vegetables is a crucial step in promoting food security but producing local seed stock is also key. Did you know that the majority of seeds used in Canadian agriculture are not from Canada? By buying locally produced seeds, you support local businesses and obtain seeds that are suited to the local climate and generally provide better results!

If you’d like to know more about the seed movement in Canada check out the Bauta Family Seed Security Initiative and local Seed Producer Dan Brisbois’ Seed Blog.

Urban Gardening

It’s also the perfect time year to consider investing in self-watering containers; they are one of the best investments you can make to ensure gardening success.  Most vegetable garden plants hate the stress that comes from drying out between waterings. Our neighbours at Alternatives have infomation on making and purchasing self-watering containers. We also found this pretty ornamental pot hack.
