Ever hear of a Seed Keeper?
Owen Taylor has been farming his entire life. He started a gigantic vegetable garden at age 14 and immediately fell in love with it. He met his husband Chris - also a farmer - at a conference on farming and social justice. His company Truelove Seeds offers an online catalog of 'culturally important' plantings. He says he’s been filling orders non-stop since the pandemic hit. As a 'seed keeper', he grows everything for the seeds He only buys from small farmers, and puts the origin of the seeds on the back of each packet. Half of each sale goes back to the original farmer. He practices a natural form of farming known as 'no-till'. #BeLocalish
