It is with regret that I must announce that Harmonic Herbs will not be able to supply seeds in 2021. The Covid-19 situation created problems getting help, and crops were planted late and on a reduced scale. That, along with some crop failures and much deer damage, resulted in a very poor seed harvest. Ongoing challenges related to the pandemic have led me to realize that business as usual is not an option for now, though I remain optimistic for the future. The intention for this season is to focus on health and safety, and growing more seed - rebuilding our stock of regionally adapted Open Pollinated varieties. There will be updates....
Web ordering is not available, but the website will remain up as a resource for planting instructions and identifying varieties that have done well in our Albertan/Zone 3 conditions. I apologize to long term loyal customers for the disruption, and invite either of you to email me with any questions.
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2021 - may your weeds be medicinal :)
Safe Seed Pledge
"Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms poses great biological risks, as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release.
More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities."
OSSI Pledge: "You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives."
