Local Vendor Focus April 2013: Ann Arbor Seed Company

Local Vendor Focus: Ann Arbor Seed Company
by Jen Whaley, Produce Manager

Spring is finally here and, for many of us, this means the beginning of a new growing season.  The Co-op is excited to announce some great additions to our gardening section this year. First up is Ann Arbor Seed Company (a2seeds.com)—yes, you read that right, we now have a LOCAL company offering seeds that are just right for our SE Michigan climate and soil. First introduced to us at last year’s Local Food Summit, this company quickly sprouted and took root thanks to the combined work of U of M alums Eric Kampe and Meredith Kahn. Eric, an engineer by trade, found his calling while volunteering on a farm in Boulder, CO, eventually moving home to pursue his dream. His wife, Meredith, uses her organizational skills as a librarian to manage the administrative end of the business.  The Co-op currently carries their ten charter seed varieties, but look for their seed offerings to rise in the
coming years!

We are also proud to be the exclusive local distributor of High Mowing Organic Seeds. Started as a one-man operation in Wolcott, Vermont in 1996, High Mowing has grown to a thriving business that is deeply invested in sustainability and community. Look for the spinner display with nearly 150 seed varieties.

Last, but not least, again this spring we have a great selection of perennial fruit and veggies – raspberries, strawberries, and asparagus – as well as potato and shallot starts and flower bulbs from the Netherland Bulb Company.

Happy gardening!
