I'm visiting the folks in Gainesville Fl. My dad is an avid gardener and prides himself on giving home-grown produce to his friends and neighbors. I would love to give him seeds for unusual varieties of fruits and vegetables.
He was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. While his prognosis sucks, he is doing very well right now - he still has a very active life and still loves to play in the dirt. Obviously (or not) the gift has a lot of symbolic value and I want to get it right.
Is there a place in town where I can go to find non-GMO, non-hybrid, strange and yummy seeds for his garden? Bonus points if this place is staffed by folks who know what they are doing - since I clearly don't.
If there isn't a place in Gainesville, is there an online retailer that you would recommend? I'm kind of overwhelmed by the options out there.
Thanks So Much!
