Grande Ronde Area Seed Savers
Folly Farm is home to a community-built cache of heirloom seeds grown and harvested in northeast Oregon.
We aim to spark interest in saving seeds, build seed-saving skills and knowledge, and support local seed swaps. By participating in seed swaps, together we will build up a cache of delicious, rare, and regionally-adapted heirloom produce that grows and thrives here in the northeastern corner of Oregon.
We welcome our friends and fans to harvest seeds with us in the Fall, and take sees along to plant in their own gardens next year. Saving heirloom seeds ensures we’ll have more to grow next year, and seeds to share with the next generation.
Why save seeds?
An understanding of the food chain and the source of the foods you eat brings to the forefront the full life cycle of every living organism. By growing, harvesting, and saving our own seeds, we take responsibility for making decisions about how and where our food is grown, and the types of food we eat.
