Since 1997, Garden Medicinals has been serving gardeners, herb growers and herbalists with a fine selection of seeds, roots, supplies and books. Our mission is to promote the ethical propagation, cultivation, and informed use of medicinal and culinary herbs. We specialize in untreated, open-pollinated (non-hybrid) seed and roots, because we believe that seeds belong in the public domain. We strive to increase awareness about the importance of conserving and protecting our native medicinal herb resources. By offering rare and hard to find seed, together we reduce the collection pressure on wild populations of herbal plants. We aim to promote the use of ecologically grown seed through providing a high quality product, as well as informational resources. Our desire is to make medicinal and culinary herb seeds and roots more accessible to everyone.


OUR SEEDS
We offer over 200 varieties of herb, flower and vegetable seeds and roots, along with the cultural information needed to successfully grow, harvest, and enjoy your crops. The vegetable and flower seeds we offer are select ethnic and heirloom varieties, including some from our breeding program. All of our seed is untreated, some organic, and much is ecologically grown using natural methods. All of our seeds undergo germination testing to ensure viability.


OUR BUSINESS STRUCTURE AND LOCATION
We are a worker-run cooperative located in central Virginia, near the rolling Blue Ridge. Each and every worker has a voice in company decision making, and all worker/owners receive equal compensation regardless of the economic value traditionally placed on the jobs done. We aim to provide a flexible and enriching work environment where each person is inspired to take on multiple roles and to think creatively about how we can continue to improve our work.
