The Mauro family makes it easy for first timers to get started by grouping seeds together in kits based on growing season. So things like basil and cilantro are in the herb garden pack, and peas, spinach, and carrots make up a kit for cool-weather growing. A sweetly illustrated guide helps you along.
Heirloom seeds are passed down through generations and are thought to be more flavorful than commercially-made ones. The Mauros are even sharing their very own type of tomato in the tomato seed kit.
They give back by working with organizations around the world which get the seeds into the hands of people who need them most, and help them plant gardens. Best of all, heirloom seeds can be replanted year after year to keep the cycle of homegrown food going.
