Good Earth Farms – Simon and Heather.

We are Simon Toole and Heather Mills and we have a passion for saving seed and
growing delicious food. All of our seeds are grown by us, open pollinated, untreated
and many are heirlooms. We started our business in 2002 and got our own farm in 2004.
We grow all naturally and are deeply committed to sustainable local growing. We are
thankful to have the opportunity to grow in such a beautiful valley and for the undying
support of our customers.

3.BACKYARD BOTANICAL.

Cathie Moulton

seaem@live.ca

My name is Cathy Moulton and I have lived in Merville BC for over 30 years.  I have been gardening all of my life and a couple of years ago decided to turn my love of gardening into my employment.  I grow mostly culinary herbs but have plans to expand into medicinal tea herbs over time. I also sell spring vegetable plants and tomato baskets.  My plants are all grown responsibly without use of chemicals.  You can find me at  local farm markets such as Comox Valley Farmers Market, Pier Street Market in Campbell River and The Merville Hall Gumboot Market in Merville throughout the spring and summer.

4. SWEET ROCK FARM.

Sal Dominelli

saldominelli@gmail.com

Sweet Rock Farm is Sal Dominelli, Ila Patel and their family.  They grow open pollinated, non-gmo seed, organically, with care and attention to detail.  Many, but not all varieties are heirlooms.  All seed is grown by them and a trusted friend, a retired certified-organic farmer from the Fraser Valley.  Sal has been a seed grower for 15 years, and came to it as a market gardener and as someone who grows a serious amount of his family’s food.  Ila focuses more on the care of their sheep, chickens, and our horse.  Sal spends his time growing vegetables for sale and for seed, keeping bees, and tending the numerous heirloom fruit trees around the property.
