Why buy local seeds?

Growing vegetables is a crucial step in promoting food security and 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!
