Foundroot is a small farm and seed company in Haines, Alaska run by husband and wife team, Nick and Leah. Their mission is to develop a secure Alaskan food system and resilient northern communities by growing flower, herb, vegetable, and seed varieties adapted to the Alaskan bioregion.
Nick and Leah hope to empower more people to grow their own food, no matter the scale and create systems of self-reliance and food sovereignty for northern communities. They have operated as a seasonal online seed retailer for 9 years, sending seeds to over 70 different Alaskan communities and throughout the Lower 48. Foundroot only sells open-pollinated seeds that have been proven for Alaskan growing conditions.
