Grown with Love
We are passionate about Heirloom Seeds
and Growing our Food Organically!
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 farm’s permaculture gardens.
Our seeds are non-GMO, open pollinated and non-hybrid.
Why choose our seeds
Grown Right Here
All our seed is grown on our farm’s 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.
