It's hard to place value on an organization that is working for food security. What is more important than passing on our food traditions from generation to generation. With most of our nations food coming from thousands of miles a way, I take no small comfort in knowing Seed Savers is making sure that American Farmers and gardeners can continue to grow the plants our ancestors worked so hard in perfecting. Thanks for the good work and all the wonderful varietals.
I ordered seeds from them last spring (2013) and I received them packaged properly but it had been raining here. The envelope was soaked through and my seeds got wet. I dried them out until I was ready to plant. None of them germinated. I sent SSE and email and explained what happened, just so they would be aware that the packaging was NOT waterproof and my seeds had molded from the rain that soaked the envelope. They emailed me back within a couple days stating they were sending me out replacement seeds. I had only purchased 3 or 4 packets for a very small backyard garden. I was blown away with their promptness, especially because I hadn't contacted them with the intention of getting replacement product. I love what they stand for and I will definitely do business with them again!
