Jere Gettle, who started the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds company, first conceived the idea at the age of 17! We had the pleasure of hearing about his youth growing up on a farm where his family grew all their own vegetables and the joy he still experiences each spring when the first plants set fruit. Starting with a paper catalog as a teenager his company has grown through his hard work and love for the environment. Not unlike Heirloom Meals - Jere now fuses modern with traditional ways - using Facebook and other social media to connect and educate people about Heirloom Seeds. Listen in to hear Jere demystify some of the questions about seed saving and explain how his seeds are different from the ones sold at big box stores and buy his book The Heirloom Life Gardener: The Baker Creek Way of Growing Your Own Food Easily and Naturally for more detail about heirloom varieties.
