About

The Seasons Keeper Seed System is a two pronged approach to more organized, less time consuming, seed saving and gardening. The first part of the system is seed storage. Seeds are tiny and easily fall out of opened, paper seed packets. Seeds are also at risk of spoilage from humidity and heat. The Seasons Keeper answer to these problems is to store the seeds in individual, air tight, plastic vials. The vials come in two sizes (3” long and 6” long) to accommodate small seeds and large seeds. The vials won’t crack in freezing conditions, so they can be kept in a freezer for long term storage.

But having tons of plastic vials rolling around isn’t convenient either. So I came up with a storage case to organize the seed vials in a compact and easy to access manner. Seed vials can be organized in the case alphabetically, by varietal, or by any other method that works for you. The storage case is light, but sturdily constructed of nylon fabric. The case will hold 138 of the small seed vials, or 69 of the large seed vials, or a combination of both. This is enough space to store a year’s worth of garden seeds for even the most ambitious gardener. The case secures the vials with elasticized fabric, and the vials cannot fall out of the case.

The case folds flat when empty and lays about two and a half inches deep when all three panels of the case are holding vials. The case comes with a handled, plastic protector which is great for taking Seasons Keeper to seed swaps or when transporting in wet weather.

The second aspect of the Seasons Keeper system is the customizable, electronic garden catalog. This catalog contains all of the information you will need to plan your garden. Seed varietals, planting and harvesting dates, cultivation, seed source, and much more is contained in this customizable catalog. The catalog can be sorted by any variable for easy garden planning and note taking.

I am raising funds to bring the Seasons Keeper system into production and build a database system for the website. My dream is to be able to offer a Seasons Keeper system that will work for everyone.

Risks and challenges

I have a sound business plan which mitigates many risks of this startup. I have multiple manufacturers for the storage case and the seed vials, and can avoid production delays. I have contingency plans for the seeds if my order is backordered. It is of the utmost importance to me that everyone receives their rewards by the end of May, so that they can start planting right away.

That being said, the assembly of all of the rewards will be accomplished by me and my family We will be hand-painting the logo and season icons on the storage cases, hand-measuring the seed, hand-filling the seed vials, and preparing all of the rewards for shipment. This is a project of love; it means everything to me. I look forward to sharing this system with you.
