Fermeture des commandes jusqu'au 1er juin
Les deux derniers mois ont été un peu fous
Nous avons reçu 6 fois plus de commandes que la norme depuis le début de la pandémie de la COVID-19.
Nous avons travaillé fort pour expédier les commandes dans un délai raisonnable et croisons nos doigts pour que Postes Canada puisse livrer les commandes en moins de 5 semaines.
Cela a été épuisant, mais ça a également été encourageant de voir un tel intérêt pour le jardinage et la nourriture locale.
Nous sommes honorés que nos semences soient dans vos jardins cet été et qu'elles y produisent des légumes frais et des fleurs pour nourrir votre corps et votre esprit.
Nous vous remercions grandement de votre soutien continu.
Mais nous devons faire une pause pour pouvoir aller au champ et planter les cultures qui nous donneront les semences pour vos jardins de l'année prochaine.
Pour y arriver, nous devrons fermer les commandes temporairement.
Elles ré-ouvriront le lundi 1er juin
Veuillez noter que nous expédierons toutes les commandes que nous avons reçues avant de retourner travailler dans le jardin.
Orders Closed Until June 1
It's been a crazy two months.
We have had 6 times more orders than normal since the COVID 19 outbreak began.
We've been working hard to ship orders in a reasonable delay and keeping our fingers crossed that Canada Post can deliver orders in less than 5 weeks.
It's been exhausting, but it has also been invigorating to see such an interest for gardening and local food.
We are honored that our seeds will be in your gardens this summer growing fresh food and flowers to nurture your bodies and souls.
And we are grateful for your continued support.
But, we now need to take a break so we can get into the field and plant the plants that will yield the seeds for next year's gardens.
To do this, we need to close orders for a few weeks.
Orders Will Open Monday, June 1
Please note that we will ship all orders we have received before we head back into the garden.
Bred by Tourne-Sol
About our seeds
Our seeds are open-pollinated. They will breed true to type. You can save their seeds. Our seeds are certified Organic by Ecocert Canada. They were produced ecologically with organic methods. We do not offer GMO seeds. Our seeds were selected for our bio-region. They are adapted to our climate and our weather.
Read about Tourne-Sol seed production on Dan’s blog: www.goingtoseed.wordpress.com
Where do our seeds come from?
- 70% of our varieties are grown at Tourne-Sol
- 10% of our varieties are grown by local farmers (many whom are past Tourne-Sol apprentices!)
- 20% come from growers in other regions and wholesale suppliers.
We don’t grow all our own seeds because the seeds of certain crops are difficult to produce in our climate and we don’t have the space to grow everything.
We have signed the Safe Seed Pledge
Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.
