Hi fellow permaculturists,
Story Connective has released its latest podcast episode called Seeds of Inspiration with Don Tipping.

Don Tipping is a leader in the movement of saving seeds and protecting genetic biodiversity for generations to come. Don talks about why he does what he does, and he shares real stories and useful suggestions for those that want to contribute to supporting the resiliency of life.
Don is a bioregional seedsman and owner of Seven Seeds Farm in Southern Oregon. He is the founder of Siskiyou Seeds, a fairly unique organic seed company which for over 20 years has grown much of its own seeds specifically selected for the improvement of important traits such as disease resistance, pest tolerance, climate adaptation, as well as nutrition and taste. Don has also helped start up multiple cooperatives.

Protecting the Food Ark by Rural Advancement Foundation International is the cited article on seed biodiversity from the introduction.
