The South GA. Seed Company
We are anoff grid,solarpoweredheirloom seed farm. Our family of four strives to live as simple as possible. We compost, use worm castings, utilize clean solar energy for watering, and raise livestock in order to use their waste as a fertilizer. We are working towards trying to live off the land as much as possible and at the same time we are trying to make a positive impact our environment and our neighbors. We are in the process of adding more indigenous plants to our small farm in hopes of better managing the land while benefiting various plants and animals around us.
