Supporting SSE by becoming a member is greatly appreciated, not to mention beneficial. Members have access to the SSE Yearbook, which lists thousands of varieties not otherwise available. Members also receive a 10% discount on orders from our print and online catalog, as well as the latest news from SSE’s international seed saving community through our membership publication, the Heritage Farm Companion. However, you don’t have to be a member to order from our award-winning catalog, which is free upon request. Whether you order your seeds through the Yearbook or our commercial catalog, you are supporting our non-profit mission of preserving our garden heritage for future generations—Thank you!
