There is something for every type of gardener, homesteader, reader, eater, human being at this store. It is in a cool old building also so that is another reason to visit and check it out for yourself.

Great place to purchase non-GMO seeds. They have an excellent variety and very helpful employees. If you're looking for hard to find veg seeds, then you should definitely check this place out.

This place is amazing -- if you are a gardener or are just into plants or vegetables in general, I consider the seed bank to be a destination.

A really neat place if you are a gardener! Lots of seed and varieties that you will have never heard of before. And it's just fun to browse around too.

You won't believe this place. That it is actually an old bank, and such gorgeous architecture, in addition to being home to one of the most hopeful projects on the planet (saving our global food supply from Monsanto & its minions), makes it a must-go-see-&-support destination.

Always come here when I am back in Petaluma, and always buy something special for my own Welsh garden and for my best American friend in PA. It's so comforting to see everything's the same when I visit. I truly hope this and all the places that make Petaluma my home from home never change. I wish I could live... More

Attend the talks - great info. Talk to Paul - he's a huge help and an awesome resource. Buy the seeds and grow your own food.

We stopped out of curiosity and spent about 30 minutes here. What a unique store! I've never seen so many seed packets...flowers, vegetables, herbs and knick-knacks. We bought a darling milk bottle. The inside is beautiful. Don't forget to visit downstairs as well!
