Learn all about seed stewardship, why it is important and what we can do in our own backyards.
Long Description: 
Home gardeners are increasingly drawn to heirloom seeds for their unusual flavors, colors and of course, their cultural heritage. But many do not realize that unless the seeds of those heirloom and open pollinated plants are grown out properly, the genetics are lost forever. In this episode, we visit the Organic Seed Alliance and meet Dr. John Navazio - one of the pioneers in preserving the cultural heritage of our garden seed supply. We learn all about seed stewardship, why it is important and what we can do in our own backyards to help preserve these special plants for many more generations to come.
