Welcome to the Green Harvest website
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.
Why shop with us?
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.

When you receive
your parcel remember that all paper products can be mulched, composted or fed to earthworms.
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
Green Harvest Organic Gardening Supplies Pty Ltd
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.
