Want to bring some vibrancy, pollinators, and medicine into your garden? Calendula blooms continuously all summer long and even has light frost tolerance. The flowers can be harvested regularly for drying which encourages fresh, new growth to keep unfurling. The dried flowers have been used medicinally for centuries to reduce inflammation, stimulate the lymphatic system, and heal wounds both internally and externally. The medicine is in the volatile oils produced on the flowers so it’s important to use the entire flower when making medicine. Steeped in tea or infused into oil and applied topically are the most common uses.

How To Grow
Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?
✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.
✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.
✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
