Show Notes

Today we’re hanging out with Erica Kempter and Mike Levine, co-owners of Nature & Nurture Seeds, a Michigan based seed company. We talk about why planting regional seed matters and some of their favorite varieties from this year’s catalog, then we play the Garden Dating Game! Let’s see how well Erica and Mike know each other… in the garden. 😉 

 Erica has been farming and gardening for nearly 30 years and Mike has been obsessed with edible plants for his entire adult life. Together, in 2013, they founded Nature & Nurture Seeds, which just happens to be one of my favorite seed companies! You can learn more about the company and browse their excellent selection of seeds at

Nature & Nurture Seeds was featured in my Top Ten Favorite Seed Companies list that we posted on Patreon earlier this year. You can find the full list at

In this episode I also talk about our new Seeds & Weeds Facebook group. This a fun forum for all of us to share our plant adventures with each other.. find the group and join the conversation at:
