Organic Places in Quebec

Hi this page is very limited for me as I do not speak french and I could not translate some of the websites but there are a few that I could so if you have any you would like to see added here please let me know:

I am working on putting together places across Canada for everyone so they know great places to buy Heritage & Heirloom Organic Seeds: Click on the name of the company and it will take you to their website.

Not Seeds from any of Monsanto companies.

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Any living thing, plant or animal, that has had its DNA altered by humans is a GMO.

GE stands for Genetically Engineered (not General Electric). GE crops are GMOs.

So what is a backyard gardener supposed to do?

Check them out and do your Homework, that’s what. Just because a dealer sells Seminis seeds, that doesn’t arbitrarily make it a bad company. They might be family- or employee-owned, and they might have a strong commitment to stewardship and environmentalism. They also might be a company who answers to shareholders and is only concerned about their bottom line. You have to find out for yourself.

The only way to be a responsible gardener is to get involved and contact your seed dealer directly. Find out which of their products are Seminis/Monsanto and which aren’t. Find out which seeds are GE and which aren’t. Let them know you won’t buy Seminis. Let them know you won’t buy GE seed, regardless of the company of origin. Vote with your dollars. Seed dealers are like any other business… they respond to their customer’s needs. If there is no demand for Seminis seeds, then dealers will stop carrying them.

Quebec:

Hardy Fruit Trees

Our hardy tree nursery is located in Ste-Julienne, North of Montreal, in the Lanaudiere region of Québec.

In the nursery and the garden we have hundreds of rare varieties of fruit and vegetables, a testimony to the huge biodiversity inherited from our ancestors.

All our trees have been grown naturally without herbicides, fungicides, ect and taken care of and harvested by passionate nature loving people. Our mission is to offer and promote hardy fruit trees that will survive even in the northernmost part of Canada and also in the Prairies, so everybody can rely on a good fruit harvest.

We love trees and have selected the cultivars that we think will best perform under our harsh climate. Many of our trees can withstand minus 50ºC ( zone 2) and are disease and insect resistant.

We hope that we will answer all your needs.
