Feed Your Inner Gardener with ‘Humble Seed’
Scottsdale, Ariz. (April 14, 2010) – Humble Seed cultivates the gardener within all of us with irresistible “seed that feeds” kits. Each kit features premium seed packets for an array of edible plants. First-time entrepreneurs Jim and Kristen Mitchell, who launched the online business today, aim to inspire would-be growers by making seed selection easier while enhancing variety, flavor, and nutritional value.
Instead of sifting through piles of paper envelopes vulnerable to heat and humidity, www.HumbleSeed.com customers pick from themed gardens in a kit: Hot Mama’s Peppers and Chiles; The Producer; Uncle Herb’s Favorites; and Veggin’ Out.
Every kit contains at least 10 premium packets of seeds for environmentally conscious growers offering higher seed counts than similar products. Seeds are packaged in re-sealable Mylar bags for ultimate protection, allowing growers to plant now or later. For those seeking a survival seed bank, The Producer is a bulk fruit-and-vegetable kit that is packaged within an FDA-approved container for long-term food storage.
Humble Seed is a labor of love. After relocating to the Valley from the Midwest one year ago, Jim left his career as an energy trader to follow his heart. He poured his energy and savings into Humble Seed, an entirely self-funded venture.
“My whole life I’ve been trying to find one calling, one passion that would help people,” Jim says. “I really connected to growing my own food. There are so many health, financial and environmental benefits and creating a stable, healthy food supply reduces our reliance on other economies.”
The Scottsdale husband-and-wife team share a passion for making a difference. We are extremely excited that we’re helping empower people in a down economy,” says Kristen. “Families can now get fresh food at a fraction of the cost found at your local produce section.”
Humble Seed is dedicated to providing the highest quality heirloom, non-GMO, non-hybrid, and organic seed varieties to conscientious gardeners who choose to start from seed. Hobbyists, retirement communities, survival gardeners, schools and restaurants can buy the kits at www.HumbleSeed.com. The website also features books, recipes and seed-growing tips. Kits start at $21.95.
