“Beautiful old building”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The building looked like a turn of the (last) century bank...just gorgeous...and there was a very nice collection of heirloom seeds, gardening books, "green" bags, and lots of other interesting items. If you like gardening, you'll love this place!

“Terrific place”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Anyone interested in environmental gardening and balancing nature would find this place wonderful. Set in an old bank building, it contains a wide collection of seeds that have been saved and collected to resurrect and maintain the integrity of world seed supplies. An integrous effort. Bravo

“Great Location/Building/Variety”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Iʻd been receiving catalogs for years from this company, and Iʻm so glad they came to Petaluma. The 1920s bank building is wonderful, and for garden enthusiasts of any variety it is a shopping wonderland with tremendous variety in seeds. They also had plant starts. This place is worth a special trip to Petaluma. Their environmentally responsible stance and community involvement are impressive and appreciated.

“cool idea, great array of seeds”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Very neat place in an actual old bank. The selection of tomato seeds was crazy and a little overwhelming. Only disappointment was that the seeds were all from a company in Missouri - thought they might be a local group. The staff was very knowledgable, friendly and engaging.

Great stop for gifts for the green-thumbed friends.

“A Find!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Located in an historical bank building with marble all around. Great selection of seeds, cookbooks, garden implements, heirloom beans and other interesting items.
