About HGSA Member Activities


The Home Garden Seed Association (HGSA) is a member driven organization made up of garden seed packet companies, seed growers, and packet printers. Our central goal is to promote gardening from seed.

Our website serves this goal in two ways: by providing our association members, the gardening media, and individual home gardeners nationwide with well researched, accurate, useful articles and features about successful gardening from seed, the packet seed industry, and major gardening trends.

Additionally, the HGSA acts as a Trade Association and forum for members to discuss issues of mutual concern. The website updates our members on all Association activities, most particularly the annual HGSA Seed Conference and Trials, which takes place in a different location every September.

When asked to name a favorite, these savvy growers may hesitate for just an instant before naming the one that has risen to the top spot in their 2017 list of favorites. In 2018, another seductive tomato may unseat it. And that’s just one of the things that makes gardening fun. READ MORE
