Hi, we are launching a Kickstarter campaign in the first two weeks of August. Looking for some help to spread the word on launch day. See contact information for how you can get involved.
We are a three person certified organic seed company located in Ojai, California. We aim to demystify the process of farming and gardening by providing quality, certified organic, non-GMO seed varieties and straightforward growing information directly to our customers. A vast portion of our seed catalog is sourced directly from our acre and a half farm.
Our mission is twofold: 1) propagating plant biodiversity and 2) improving existing open-pollinated vegetable varieties, including heirlooms. We are working farmers that grow vegetable, flower, and herb varieties that will maximize our growing potential each season, and we know that quality varieties begin with quality seed.
Certified organic seeds are more than a label, they are also a process. Our desire to ensure quality seed varieties that produce food grown without pesticides, chemical fertilizer inputs or genetic modification has kept us in touch with each stage of what it takes to bring quality seeds to market. We are involved in the growing, harvesting, seed cleaning, storage, design, packaging and shipping of our seeds.
The small scale nature of this project brings a specific set of challenges, and we are reaching out through Kickstarter for support to help realize our company’s potential. Our work benefits all farmers and gardeners who choose to grow organically, embrace health, and enhance their own self-sufficiency.We’ve put together a small film in support of the project that can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/PlantGoodSeed
By investing in us we will be investing in you. Contributions to our Kickstarter campaign will cover our home farm’s seed production costs, pay for our printing and envelope runs, and allow us to continuing sourcing new varieties from other certified organic seed growers, thereby supporting the organic seed movement generally. In turn, you will receive seed credit in our online catalog at 15% above your contribution. Our catalog presently features over 150 – and growing – certified organic, non-GMO vegetable, flower and herb varieties, including special collections, rare, heirloom, and farm original varieties; even a retail seed rack. Seed credit can be used in tandem with any future variety releases, discounts, specials, or coupons we offer and also covers shipping costs. We can also break up your balances into smaller denominations, which can then be distributed as gifts.
We will also be offering other compelling rewards that are connected to the five year history of our farm. These will be announced when the project is officially launched.
The Kickstarter campaign will launch during the first week of August and will run for 30 days. If you are interested in helping us prior to launch, please contact us at allgoodthings ( at ) plantgoodseed dot com. We are looking for a group of people who would be willing to share our campaign via social media on its launch day, and ideally get their friends to as well. Additionally, we are looking for folks could commit to financially backing the project.
Thanks for your time and consideration!
