OUR PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION

We are growers of organically certified medicinal herb seed and plants here in Southern Oregon. We like things that are ALIVE! We are the seed company that we wanted to find back in the early 70's and 80's when we first seriously engaged learning the alchemy of seeds. Its been a long road and we want you to benefit from our work! We offer an extensive collection of organically certified seeds from the new harvest and plants grown on our own farm, including indigenous herb seeds from the African, Native American, Ayurvedic and Chinese traditions. We also grow or collect seed of significant medicinal and aromatic herbs from the deserts, forests, mountains, plains and shores of North America, Central and South America, Russia, China, Tibet, India, Pakistan, the Middle East, Japan, Europe, the Mediterranean basin, Africa (especially Kenya, South Africa and Zanzibar), Australia, the Canary Islands, New Zealand and beyond. From our rootsy and organic greenhouse and shadehouses, we offer plants of annuals, herbaceous perennials and woody perennials, common medicinals, cover crops, nitrogen fixers, shelterbelt and wildlife favorites, dye plants, medicinal trees, fruits, tubers, vines, roots, corms, bulbs, and water plants as well as sacred herbs. In the words of the Dalai Lama, "Diversity is both beautiful and necessary."

We here at Strictly Medicinal Seeds believe that gardeners can heal the world by growing diversity. It is a well-documented fact that we are living in a time of great loss of species, and it is our understanding that this loss of species is both a cause and an effect of the current ecological downturn. Therefore we propose that everyone engage in species rehabilitation toward a renewed blossoming of diverse gardens on planet earth. It may not be the only answer, but it is one of the best.

As a way of fueling the rising up of a green, self-sufficient and non-violent revolution, lets grow the seeds of our children's future in our gardens NOW and teach by example. Please join us, beautiful people, in planting diverse open-pollinated and organic seeds. Richo Cech
