Terra Informa

This episode originally aired on May 24, 2021: It's spring, which means you may have started your own garden, or maybe you know someone who started bringing up little seedlings months ago. Seeds are where all home gardens and farmers' fields begin - but there are some key differences between the seeds that large agro-corporations sell and the ones that you can choose to plant in your backyard or balcony.

This week, we speak with Denise O'Reilly, the head of operations at A'Bunadh Seeds and get down to the root of questions like, what does it mean to save seeds, and why is it important? What's an heirloom variety? Is that different than a hybrid?
