About

Cubit's Ethical Seeds for Edible Gardens

Welcome to Cubit's. We sell high quality, organically grown, rare and heirloom seeds for home vegetable gardens.

We believe that everyone can grow their own delicious organic produce and love helping families grow their own food. We split our time between urban gardens in the city of Kingston & our small farm in picturesque Prince Edward County.

{ who we are }

We are Laura and Ryan and Cubit's is what happens when you combine art and design backgrounds with a passion for eating local and growing edibles. We work along side our children.

Cubit's started in our own back yard of a rented apartment in downtown Toronto where our mascot, Hazel, frequently dug up our gardens. After growing into several city yards, both our own and volunteered by friends and family we recently broke ground on a beautiful Ontario farm.

{ our name }

Cubit’s takes it’s name both from our family tree and a historical Toronto market farmer named Cubit Sparkhall. He owned a large piece of land in East End Toronto, approximately where Withrow Park is now. Cubit was uniquely named after the cubit, an ancient measurement once used to measure building materials and small amounts of land; a cubit is about 18 inches, measured from the tip of your thumb to your elbow.

{ our seeds and the environment }

Our seed is all organically grown and untreated, much of it by ourselves with a few choice seed varieties coming from certified organic farms. We are Monsanto, Seminis and GMO free. Our seeds are Open Pollinated. We love talking seeds and have taken the safe seed pledge.

Cubit's is committed to using environmentally friendly practices in all aspects of our business operations and general day to day life. We use recycled packaging, non toxic glues, all of our printed matter is on recycled paper and we emphasize local suppliers.

In addition to our environmental commitments, Cubit's guarantees both the quality of our seed and your satisfaction. Our seeds are carefully inspected and hand packed into recycled envelopes, complete with planting instructions.
