Tourne-Sol co-operative farm is a workers cooperative run by 5 young farmers. The farm is in Les Cèdres, QC, about 45 minutes west of Montreal. They grow certified organic vegetables, herbs, flowers, herbal teas, seeds and bedding plants that are sold at the Sainte-Anne farmers' market and through their 300-member community supported agriculture (CSA) program.
Seed production has been a part of thier farm since they started, helping them adapt seed to their soils and climate. It ensures a supply of organic seed that might not be available otherwise. Most importantly, the flowering seed crops are abuzz with pollinators, insects, humming birds and toads bringing stability to their agro-ecosystem.
Tourne-Sol farmer Dan Brisebois blogs about their seed at www.goingtoseed.wordpress.com.
