About Sharon

When I was a child, I followed my Swiss immigrant grandmother around while she taught me about skills like using a scythe, making sauerkraut, her own clothes, yodeling, butchering animals, and telling stories from the Old Country. I was always drawn to saving seed and using plants for healing. It is my belief that the healthiest food is grown fresh in the garden using only organic and biodynamic gardening methods. I grew up on a local farm and have gardened for 50 years. 

We are as seed Only You walk the Sky Our feet must follow the Earth And find again The path of Beauty.

just in case you did not know what they look like or the danger They are the ones with herseys kisses on the back and the babies are most dangerousA friendly reminder and warning for those of you with kids and dogs - It is September and the start of football season, but it is also the time of year when copperheads are born.
The baby snakes are born with venom and ready to defend themselves. The mama snake generally gives birth to about 8 - 10 of these critters, so if you find one there are others around. The babies will keep those greenish/yellow tips on their tails for about a year. These snakes are not generally aggressive but will bite if you are unfortunate enough to touch or step on one. Do not reach under bushes, around rocks, or even flower pots without looking first. They like damp places so beware, even under children's toys and dog dishes!

KC and I met and volunteered for a week with Earthwize farm when they did The first "Animal Powered field Days " I had raised a team of horses but never had the means to make farming with drafts happen here though the dream has always been there . This film really articulated the importance of raising and using animals in the ways passed down for generations not following the path of industrial agriculture .Many want to go vegan but that eliminates animals as partners in our lives and requires imported foods and often foods grown with chemicals or industrial cafo manures and products . animals need to live healthy ,balanced lives on the land as do humans.. ...

“I ordered Alpine strawberry plants, nettle plant, gooseberry plants and miscellaneous seeds. All were stunning, well grown and packaged. I immediately ordered more from this fine seller.”

from previous customers...

Wonderful experience : “I purchased seeds from Sharon and it was a wonderful experience. You won’t get this kind of service from a corporate seed company. You really can feel the love that goes into her labor. Her shipping was fast, and her selection is great!…”

We look forward to hearing from you too!
