Guest: Stephen Scott, Heirloom Seedsman
Stephen Scott is an Heirloom Seedsman, soil building advocate, locavore, amateur chef, artist and co-owner with his wife Cindy of Terroir Seeds, having been involved with heirloom seeds, environmental education, habitat restoration, soil health and building local food pathways for more than 20 years in central Arizona. He's an author, speaker and educator on seed, soil, food and health and how they relate to and strengthen each other.
They have studied the impact of loss of agriculture on the health of soils and how to restore the biological activity and vitality in both grassland and rangeland improvements with several local central Arizona ranches. Their personal home garden has served as a test bed over the years in learning to adapt the lessons learned in rangeland management and soil restoration to the home garden.
In 2008 Stephen and Cindy began their dream that is Terroir Seeds; a company that not only provides quality garden seeds, but helps customers improve their gardens and abilities with a wealth of information not found anywhere else. Early on, realizing that seeds were only one link in the chain of healthy food led to the model of providing not only the best seeds for the home garden, but also the knowledge needed to improve the soil for superior produce and recipes on how to prepare this treasure of home-grown food.
