Chris Hardy

I am inspired to connect people to nutrient dense foods they can grow from seeds they can save. Farming has been in my family for at least 5 generations and my travels abroad have kept my passion high for organic farming, farm consulting and education in seed saving and regenerative agriculture. I initiated the successful campaign in Southern Oregon to ban genetically engineered crops and helped bring farmers and citizens together to protect traditional seed saving practices.

For the past 16 years I have helped organize regional seed swaps, local farmers markets and have developed a relationship with Rogue Valley Farm to School program to connect kids to seeds and their food. I am founder of Hardy Seeds and currently oversee the production of more than 300 unique types of vegetable, grain, perennial and herb seeds. I am a founding board member of the Southern Oregon Seed Growers Association and am actively engaged in building a network of seed growers to strengthen diversity in the food system.
