Beekman 1802 Teaming With Williams-Sonoma

The good folks at Beekman 1802 are teaming with Williams-Sonoma to get America growing with the Beekman Heirloom Vegetable Garden Seed Collection. 

The collection consists of ten easy to grow heirloom vegetables grown in the beautiful gardens on the Beekman Farm.  The seeds are in their purest form and have not been genetically modified in any way.  All the seeds come from the D. Landreth Seed Company, the oldest seed company in the country.  It is likely that William Beekman sold these same varieties of seeds in his Mercantile which was originally located across from the farm in Sharon Springs, NY.  The seed collection retails for $19.95, a great value!

Beekman 1802 and Williams-Sonoma are looking to create the worlds largest community garden, with over 10,000 people growing the same varieties of vegetables in their own gardens this year.  As part of the community, gardeners are encouraged to participate in the new Beekman Gardening Forum, where hints, tips, questions, and answers can be found for just about any gardening problem. To learn more about the worlds largest community garden and sign up to join the community forum, click here.

New to gardening?  Not a problem!  Sign up for a bi-weekly gardening check list from the Beekman so you can stay on track and discover just how easy and rewarding gardening can be. The checklists will begin in March, just as the weather begins to turn the corner. Sign up now by clicking here.

The new Beekman Heirloom Vegetable Garden Seed Collection can be purchased at your local Williams-Sonoma store or at their website.  Click here to order your collection today!

I love D. Landreth Seeds and bulbs. I talked to Barbara on the phone in early December - she is so very nice! This looks like a great partnership.
