For our October 24th program, Owen Taylor speaks to us about the vision for the company he began. He is a seed nerd who loves growing Southern Italian and Irish heirlooms and supporting the community food sovereignty movement through seed keeping.
Truelove Seeds is a farm-based seed company offering culturally important and open pollinated vegetable, herb, and flower seeds. Their seeds are grown by more than 50 small-scale urban and rural farmers committed to community food sovereignty, cultural preservation, and sustainable agriculture. They share all profits directly with growers: 50% of each packet sale goes back to the farmer who grew it! Truelove Seeds believes that keeping seeds is an act of truelove for our ancestors and our collective future.
