What is the most important beginning for healthy food?  Safe seeds; non-GMO, Heirloom and from a reputable supplier are essential for the health of your body.  Food starts from seeds and if you do not have a good start, it just goes down hill from there.  Plants are the basis of a healthy diet and they are the most nutrient dense item we can consume.  If you are growing it, nurturing it and harvesting it, you know the safety of your food supply. Heirloom gardening is a lifestyle that has never left, it is saving the plant world.
