Podcast: Seeds with Jere Gettle

Jere Gettle, founder of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, is hard to pin down for an interview, but we finally found time to chat in this week’s podcast. He shares his love of seeds with anyone who will listen, and his passion for seed-preservation is saving the world.

Biodiversity is the key to survival. As corporate agriculture buys up smaller seed companies, that biodiversity diminishes. Jere Gettle’s desire to collect and share rare seeds from around the world combats this dilemma.
