Greetings from sunny David, KY!

This is S. Ann Marie Quinn writing to share about a new website that I found recently while doing some research. I have been very impressed with what I have seen and appreciate that they seem to hold many of the same values that we hold at Grow Appalachia. The website is: Terroir Seeds- Quality Open Pollinated Heirloom Garden …

Read below their response when I signed up for their e-newsletter and see what you think.

Yesterday, April 30th, on a very cold rainy day, I participated in a health fair in S. Magoffin called Planting Seeds of Health. I set up a table for Grow Appalachia, had copies of our calendar of classes and contract agreements, along with a very nice tri-fold poster board that KC made last year. (Thank you Kathy Curtis!) For the adults I had three questions with a prize to the person with the most correct answers. Answers were given verbally. How would you answer the questions which follow?

  1. What vegetable is really classified as a fruit?
  2. What is the difference between hybrid, heirloom, and organic?
  3. What root vegetable has edible greens which are usually not eaten?

For the parents and children I had free printables from another of my favorite educational websites:

The calendar for the month of May says, “Have Fun in the Sun and Grow a Garden!” Each day of the month has an activity to do with children. I had the fun gardening printables (coloring pages, word searches, word scrambles, matches, etc.) on hand along with the calendar. On 20 something young lady even enjoyed sitting to color and visit. There is a plethora of other topics covered on this website besides gardening: recipes, good nutrition, and more. Check it out and enjoy!

Until next time, have a blessed weekend! And, happy gardening!

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!

Hello Ann Marie,

Thank you so much for joining our Terroir Seeds Newsletter!

As a family-owned heirloom seed company we do much more than just sell seeds! Please allow us to introduce ourselves so you can get to know us better.

“We believe in a world of healthy soil, seed, food and people. Everyone has a fundamental need for vibrant food and health, which are interrelated.

We work to achieve this by challenging conventional gardening practices, providing successful agricultural methods along with the finest heirloom seeds, all while inspiring the power of individual choice and action.

We work for a world where the food we grow is good for us, our health and our communities!”

Everything is connected – from healthy, fertile soils to the highest quality seeds that grow the tastiest, most nutritious food you’ve ever had, right from your own garden. We’ll show you how in our Newsletters!

Cindy and I have been involved with heirloom seeds, environmental education, rangeland habitat restoration, soil health and building local food pathways for more than 20 years and have been active in Slow Food for over a decade. We were 2012 delegates to Terra Madre, the bi-annual world food conference in Turin, Italy; possibly the first heirloom seed company to be chosen to represent the United States.

We will share with you the best practices, techniques, seeds and recipes we’ve found to help you have the most amazing garden. We are experts as authors, speakers and educators on how seed, soil, food and health relate to and strengthen each other. Expect to see unusual and unique things from us that are found nowhere else!

Whether you are just starting on your first garden, returning to gardening, or are an experienced grower, you will find something that will help you along your journey!

Over the next few days, we will give you a taste of what we do and how it integrates into a whole that is much more than the sum of the parts.

Comments, questions and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged, so please don’t hesitate to let us know what’s on your mind.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for more conversations!

Thanks for joining us!

Stephen and Cindy Scott
