A Note from Renee Shepherd

I am excited to be partnering with your organization to grow cash

donations through our fundraising program. Here's a little background

about my seed company:

At Renee's Garden, I offer only the varieties that are very special for

home gardeners, based on great flavor, easy culture and exceptional

garden performance in every climate zone. Our seeds are non- GMO and

include my personal selection of time-tested heirlooms, certified organic

varieties, the best international hybrids and classic open-pollinated varieties. I harvest and use the vegetables and herbs in my kitchen and cut the flowers to select the finest colors, forms and fragrances. Our varieties are tested and guaranteed for every major US climate zone.

Our individually written packets offer beautiful watercolor portraits,

with personally written descriptions, complete growing instructions, a

quick-view planting chart, growing tips, harvesting information and

cooking ideas. Inside you'll find superior quality seed–the top

germinating, reliable seed usually reserved for specialty growers.

Renee's Garden is my practical way to spread the joy of gardening as a

meaningful, productive and satisfying activity that connects us to each

other and the earth. Please join me!
