Encore Edition: Seed Savers co-founder Diane Ott Whealy
For more than 35 years, Diane Ott Whealy has been a national leader in the heirloom seed movement and a strong advocate for the protection of the earth's genetic food stocks. In 1986, she helped to develop Heritage Farm, Seed Saver's scenic 890-acre headquarters near Decorah. In a program that originally aired last October, Diane talks about her book Gathering: Memoir of a Seed Saver. It tells the story people's dream that became reality with the help of like-minded individuals and led to the establishment of the Seed Savers Exchange.
