Diane Ott Whealy reveled in the glorious bounty of the land from a young age, when her grandparents’ farm fairly burst with spinach, potatoes, peas, and rhubarb; the yard lush with lilacs and hollyhocks—the products of loving care and long, hard toil. Those were times when “store-bought seeds, like store-bought anything else, was a luxury,” and seeds were passed down from grandparent to grandchild, neighbor to neighbor. Listen as Diane documents the remarkable history of the Seed Savor Exchange, the creativity, dedication, and sheer gumption behind its rise, and the growth of the heirloom movement.
