2012 Seed Catalog: It's seed season!

The new catalog is up! We've got more varieties, more photos, more descriptions, more planting info, and more on the way. We've tried to get everything up and working for the new year that you'll need to order seeds, renew or become a member, or redeem your gift membership. You can browse the catalog by variety by using the left hand column or you can see the quick order form in list format by clicking on Catalog.

Please note that orders with Garden and Library Packs start shipping January 17th. That gives us enough time to finish the last of the germination tests and get your seeds packed up.


For us, being seed savers is a year round commitment with two main seasons: growing and sharing. These seasons overlap on each end, but for the most part we're focused on the seed farm during the growing season and then we have a short season to get all of the seeds cleaned, packed, and sent out to you!

We hope you enjoy the new catalog. You'll notice a few other changes to the website. We're challenging ourselves to add more content to the blog including garden how-to, seed news, harvest tips, stocking up, and recipes. We've also been combing through our photos and we'll be adding new pics as we find them. If you've sent us pics from your garden in the past they might just wind up on the website this year! If you would like to send more pics the best way to do that is to share them on our Facebook page.

This year we need to reach more gardeners than ever in order to keep the farm, Seed Library, and business going. Please consider helping to spread the word by using the seed sharing season to share the Seed Library with your gardening friends.

Here's to a bountiful sharing season and an even better (and drier!) growing season next spring.

Stay seedy! Ken & Doug

    I would love your seed catalog to order vegetable seeds for winter sowing.

    Thank you so much for your response to our Seed Swap on the RCGC facebook page. We would appreciate any seeds you would like to donate. Our address is 5 Castle Park Rochester, NY 14620 and you could put it to the attention of Christine Froehlich. That's me and I am the director.
    Love your website, great work! Christine
