Apr 27, 2022

Here's our latest collaboration with Dan Brisebois of Tourne-Sol Cooperative-Farm, The Seed Growers Podcast! Subscribe on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you're listening to this podcast today.

Joelene and Adrianna of Empowered Flowers grow certified organic veg in Oregon City, OR where they sell through farmers markets and a Winter CSA. They ALSO grow a variety of seeds on seed contracts for seed companies. Adrianna and Joelene explain how they've integrated commercial seed saving into the market garden, how they got started with their first contract, and why they like contracts for selling seeds.
