I am a seed saver/farmer and founder/co-owner of Two Seeds in a Pod Heirloom Seed Co, a small, family-owned seed company that specializes in Turkish heirlooms.
I gardened/farmed in the Tampa Bay Area for around 10 years until we moved to West Virginia in June 2018. Our new farm will be located in Reedsville, WV, where I would like to explore Appalachian heirloom varieties. I currently am working on conceptualizing the Morgantown Seed Preservation Library that we aim to open in April 2019.
I also am a Service Assistant Professor on a part-time basis in the Department of Geology & Geography at WVU on projects related to seed preservation, seed sovereignty, seed/food security, local foodways and regional farming traditions.
