Fast shippings/good communication/excellent value

I have not sown the arugula seeds yet, but the company has great communications, fast shipping and I have had excellent results with all seeds purchased over a period of 5 years, so much so that I am moving most of my seed buying to Native Seed Search. Their seeds seem to do really well in the northern Chihauhauan desert (Truth or Consequences, NM) where I food garden. Food sovereignty and survival gardening is so important for every one of us. This company supports communities to reconnect with heritage seeds and traditional cultural gardening practices which also makes me search their inventory first when I want seed.
