The Populuxe Seed Bank is a privately run seed bank located in Edmonton, AB.
In January 2009 I decided to start my own private seed bank. Over the course of 2009 and 2010 the original number of a handful of varieties of seeds I started with has grown to over 200 heirloom and open pollinated varieties, and is growing exponentially as each month passes, as other dedicated growers donate their seeds for preservation.
The Populuxe Seed Bank was born to acquire seeds, grow them out, and then redistribute them to anybody wishing to grow these varieties. The Populuxe Seed Bank also documents seed histories to preserve the stories associated with the variety. The Populuxe Seed Bank helps to educate other private growers on how they can start their own seed bank to help preserve biodiversity.
