Beans And Herbs
Owner: Pippa Rosen
Location: Warminster, Wiltshire
Enterprises/Activities: Selling organic seed to a nationwide customer base via mail order from the catalogue or website.
History/background: I run a private herb nursery. For 18 years I have been growing a very wide variety of culinary, aromatic and medicinal herbs.
I am committed to safe and sustainable methods of growing for my whole business, herbs and vegetables. I have an interest in the health benefits of including these in the daily diet, and in the use of herbs for healing.
As herb-growing is a spring and summer occupation, I decided to develop the organic seed side of my business to cover also the winter months. The seed I sell has not been gene-modified in any way. It is not hybrid seed, and has been open-pollinated. It has not been given a chemical treatment in the packet and is therefore safe to handle.
By buying seed from a Certified Organic producer, like ourselves, means that buyers are supporting a totally organic system of growing. This system is harmless to the soil and environment, promotes diversity of wildlife, and ensures the health of the land for the future.
