Organic Heirloom Vegetables & Herbs
Heirloom Vegetable & Herbs
Open pollinated vegetable and herb seeds organically grown on our farm. Non-GMO and non-hybrid.
Welcome to Yilgarn Seeds
We are a not-for-profit heirloom vegetable & herb seed business managed by the Drylands Foundation at the Drylands Permaculture Farm in Geraldton, Western Australia. Our seed sales allow us to train volunteers in seed saving and develop our demonstration organic seed gardens and education facilities.
All our vegetable and herb seeds are organically grown in our permaculture gardens. They are all non-GMO, open pollinated and non-hybrid.
Why choose our seeds
Grown Right Here
All our seed is grown here in our Permaculture Gardens in Geraldton. None of the seeds we sell are imported and repackaged.
Each season we select the best plants from each variety and progressively acclimatise them to our changing climate.
We have been growing, saving and selling heirloom seeds since the mid-1980’s. Our experience in dryland organic gardening allows us to offer practical advice on how and when to grow your productive garden and begin your own seed saving journey.
