What people are saying
The garden group at the Skyline Hills Library just had Brijette back for another presentation, this one on Cold Season Gardening. She is so informative and engaging with her audience! She’s knowledgeable about all aspects, and can get technical, or talk basics. She and SDSC are jewels in San Diego gardening community!

I love this company! I took a class in seed saving last weekend and the owner’s presentation was full of information and her enthusiasm for growing plants and saving seeds was infectious. I highly recommend attending a class (or watching the video she made on this page) and buying the locally produced seeds. Since they are grown in San Diego, they are suitable for the SoCal climate but grow well elsewhere too (I have sent some to my Mother in New Hampshire!) There are now microgreen seeds as well!

I’ve taken two of Brijette’s seed-starting workshops in addition to having her consult and I’m a MUCH more effective and productive vegetable gardener as a result. A little time with Brijette was worth several seasons of painful trial and error on my own, even though I have good resources like books from Pat Welsh. I also love the seeds from SDSC. They have a high germination rate and produce good veggies!
