Q. Can you give me sources for locally grown seeds?

Can you give me sources for local heritage Philadelphia seeds? I’m looking for Philadelphia heritage seeds starters or the seeds alone.


We asked Sally McCabe, PHS Associate Director, Community Education for suggestions. Her reply:

Here are my favorite places to get seeds specific to Philadelphia, both based in Philadelphia, and using Philadelphia area growers:

Truelove Seeds  

Truelove Seeds is a farm-based seed company offering culturally important and open pollinated vegetable, herb, and flower seeds.

Experimental Farm Network 

Founded in 2013, EFN is composed of professional and amateur farmers, gardeners, plant breeders, and researchers. The network's main organizing tool — this open-source website — is free to use and open to all.
