About Us
Saanich Organics is a community of farmers from small, certified organic farms who work together to supply fresh local produce and top-quality organic seeds to Greater Victoria BC. Heather Stretch of Northbrook Farm, Robin Tunnicliffe of Sea Bluff Farm, and Rachel Fisher of Three Oaks Farm have co-owned the business since 2002, and we work with several other farmers in and around greater Victoria.

Saanich Organics’ adventures in seed production: We are very concerned about narrowing corporate control of our seed supply and about the lack of regionally adapted, organically grown seed. We decided to become part of the solution by starting Seeds of the Revolution (Saanich Organics seed).

From the start, our first priority was producing top quality seed. We read, we attend workshops, and we continue to learn all we can about good plant breeding. We are grateful for the excellent mentorship provided by Patrick Steiner of Stellar Seeds. With our careful attention to isolation distances (to prevent crossing), thinning, maintaining adequate populations, selecting the best plants, cleaning, and germination testing, we’re confident that our seed is commercial quality.
Certified Organic, grown with love.
