SEED COMPANY SPROUTS

[UPDATE 3/02/09  FreedomSeeds.org web site is up & open for business]

Moving right along here.  We just wrap up companion website to the film Homegrown Revolution – well, almost.  A few things need written and linked. But you can now order a copy of HGR!

Now onward to our other venture!

The Freedom Seeds website is not ready yet.  You know how it is with websites they take longer to develop than conceive.  Especially merchant websites. there’s just so much other coding involved.

So given the fact we are behind and with the seed buying rush in full swing and everyone itching to place their seeds orders we have put together a FREEDOM SEEDS 2009 LIST order form that you can request via email at dervaes@pathtofreedom.com and

start placing your seed order TODAY! @ FreedomSeeds.org

Support seeds grown by the people for the people and our mission to promote seed sovereignty.

Take Back the Seeds,
Take Back Our Food

Freedom Seeds is the revolutionary new seed sovereignty movement spearheaded by the non profit Dervaes Institute. Through an extensive program of education, activism, and up-to-the-minute news and fact gathering, Freedom Seeds offers a source for information on the state of our seeds, without the filter of corporate interests or mainstream media. It points to the special interests funded by Monsanto, while explaining the full implications of monopolies on food availability, livestock raising, small agricultural businesses, and one-family gardens. And it delivers ways to fight back, regaining control over the crops we grow and the food we eat.

“We have more brands of shoes than we have of carrots or broccoli.”
—Jules Dervaes

In a new model of activism and free-market enterprise, Freedom Seeds.org offers a reliable resource—not only of information on the state of our seeds, but also of the seeds themselves—safe, dependable, organic seeds untampered by industrial modification.

In its first season, Freedom Seeds gives one-trowel revolutionaries the most potent weapon at their disposal—more than 75 varieties of vegetable seeds to grow in their gardens. Working with small providers, Freedom Seeds is the conduit for the safe, diverse, and economical seeds every gardener can trust, and gives everyone a chance to be a steward of diverse strains now under threat of eradication by the seed monopolies.

All profits will go towards our homegrown, grassroots non profit educational outreach & development.

We look forward to this venture and we hope you do too.

    20′ x 20′ and have grant monies
    to buy seed for all the gardens.

    A showing of your film would be
    a cool way to meet our neighbors
    too. So, if you could e-mail the
    details for showing/purchasing the
    film, I would be so appreciative.

    I’ve been with you from the beginning
    and share you with all who are in-
    terested.

I would love to know if you are planning to put out a seed catalogue!? Mind you would it work for a zone that is 5-6ish? You probable don’t grow items that are for more of drought areas? Love your web site and I am sending this site on to my farming and ranching family!

  157. Sonja says:

    Besides wanting a Freedom Seeds List, I just wanted to say that your families vision & website inspired me. For well over 15 years – before I’d even heard of the words organic & homesteading – I dreamed of living off the land as naturally & self-sufficiently as possible. During that time, I moved around so much I was unable to have a garden, and was also unable to save any money for land. My dream seemed unreachable, and fell to the wayside. About 5 years ago I discovered your website & was blown away. Here was a family who was not only doing what I had always dreamed, but also willing to share their experiences with the rest of the world. And they were doing it in a city! Doing what they can where they were. This reawakened my dream & inspired me to believe that I could do the same. I now live in a community encourages homesteading, and I’m not letting any excuses stop me from starting my first garden – I’ve started an SFG on a friends property.

    Freedom Gardens, Ho!

    Thank you for your vision, your passion, and especially for being willing to share your journey and to help others.

  158. Cathey says:

    Just watched the nightmare Monsanto movie and am so sick. Was buying organic for my babies and didn’t think there was more to it until I started ready here. I would greatly appreciate a list of seeds. Thanks in advance! Starting a victory garden over Monsanto and the likes.

  159. Mary says:

    We are city folks that moved to the country 2 years ago. I purchased this magazine as we finally have preparations made to begin our self-sufficiency journey. Please mail a seed list when available. Thank you. If possible, I would be privileged to put a link to your site on our website.

    Anticipating the journey! Thank you for the list.

  167. Bob Segraves-Collis says:

    Super Idea Seeds of Freedom! In you journal you speak of corporate ownership of seeds. Where do we find the complete list of seeds own by corporations. I for one will choose to buy them or recommend them to others.

    At some point we need to find a way to break the hold corporations (and some Universities) have on knowledge and technology that is vital to sensible, sustainable, healthy living.

    Please send me you seed list and quantities available.

    Are there other sites that we can visit where likeminded folks have freed seeds.

    Has there been research into this situation in other parts of the world? Can we learn from them and would there be freed seeds outside the US?

  168. Bob Segraves-Collis says:

    In my previous post please insert a NOT in my comment about purchasing corporate owned seeds.!!!!

    Hi Anais,
    I’d like a seed list, more specifically for storage onions and Carrots, but I wouldn’t mind looking at your list. I’ve already planted about a month before: Broccoli, Cabbage, Kale, Potatoes(under covers when it gets cold)And today: Tomatoes, Kabocha Pumpkins, Cilantro, Mitsuba, Lettuce, Spinach, Peppers, Zucchini and some Violas. We are readying the newly expanded veggie garden and in need of buying organic compost to ammend the soil. It’s a busy time!
