Welcome to the Green Harvest website

About Us
Green Harvest is a family owned and operated Australian mail order business that has been trading since 1992. It started out simply from our desire to share our passion for organic gardening and permaculture.

We believe that we were the first organically certified seed supplier with BFA - ACO in Australia. We are proud that our website is the most comprehensive source in Australia (and possibly the world) of both organic gardening products and information on organic growing.

Our aim is to make it easier for Australians to live in healthy, natural homes with a garden full of nutritious, chemical-free vegetables and fruit.

Once a year in July we publish the Australian Organic Gardening Resource Guide. It contains 48 pages of organic gardening products and hints, to help you grow nutritious, chemical-free vegetables and fruit. It is sent out free of charge to anyone that requests it, within Australia. The Guide includes gardening books, high quality tools and unusual seeds but it also contains hard-to-find pest control products to manage pests organically. Many of these items are hard to come by and you would have to search garden centres, hardware stores, bookshops and seed companies and still not find everything you wanted!

Why shop with us?
We place a strict ethical criterion on product selection; your satisfaction with any purchase is important to us and we are happy to replace, refund or credit when necessary. Products are chosen carefully, after research proves them the best choices available for organic gardeners. Many of our pest products come supplied with detailed information sheets, which we have written to further your understanding of strategies for organic control. We appreciate customers taking the time to give us feedback about a product, as continued learning and improvement is an important motivation for us. Find more reasons to shop with us here.

Recycling
Our commitment to the environment means we re-use boxes and shredded paper when sending out parcels. When you receive your parcel remember that all paper products can be mulched, composted or fed to earthworms. The catalogue uses newsprint, as it has not been bleached. All other stationery is printed on 100% recycled paper.

Our garden
Home is a one-acre garden where we aim to grow most of our own fruit, vegetables and herbs. Our 'livestock' currently consists of Barnevelder chickens. A shade house is used for propagating a range of unusual perennial food plants. Plants for seed production and herbaceous perennials are scattered throughout the lot according to their climatic requirements.

Education
The old philosophy about giving a man a fish and he eats for a day but teach him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime applies to our philosophical basis. Frances taught permaculture and horticulture for many years, with the aim of giving people the tools to grow healthy organic food. Learning about the cycles of nature and sorting gardening myth from fact still motivates her to this day.

The Safe Seed Pledge
Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy, sell or distribute genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural eco-systems and ultimately people and communities.
