My name is Matthew Forbes. I started the Saturday Seed Co. in April of 2020. The seed company is a labour of love. It's just me here and occasionally family members join me at the kitchen table to hand-pack seeds into seed packets. I'm doing my best to curate the kind of varieties that are tried and true and to also offer some more varied and interesting varieties for you to try.

Gardening is for me, a way to detach from the busy part of my life. To put down my phone and pick up a shovel. To get my hands dirty and to be outside. I am fascinated by seeds and they give me hope. Be safe. Garden!
