Change

One of the major things I plan on changing about the Vegetable Garden for next year is the use of organic or sustainably produced seed, I have not stopped thinking about this and reading up on it since I got back from the U.S. The talk that Margaret Roach gave has made me question how I want the seed that we grow here at Great Dixter produced. It seems that seed produces do not have the same tight controls on the use of chemicals as those of us do who produce food, also there is a lot of seed production is areas of the world where a lot of water is needed to grow the plants to produce seed. We need to buy from people who use land stewardship practices, it really is something we all need to think about.

  1. Thank Aaron for passing the information along. Wish we all could have heard
    Margaret’s talk. Would love a short session included in Great Dixter’s symposia.
    Thank you much!
