DEEPLY ROOTED: John Coykendall’s Journey to Save Our Seeds and Stories - DVD - $25 for the DVD

John Coykendall is a renowned heirloom seed saver, a classically trained artist, and Master Gardener at Blackberry Farm, one of America's top resorts. He has spent half his life working to preserve the seeds and stories of a small Louisiana farming community.

Since 1973, he has made an annual pilgrimage to Louisiana to record the oral histories and growing techniques, recipes, and folktales of Louisiana farmers and gardeners in more than 80 beautifully illustrated journals. He has saved and safeguarded rare varieties of the crops they once grew and handed them back to the community they came from.

His work inspires us to reconnect with the land, with the seeds and growing expertise that our ancestors passed on to us, to grab hold and pass that legacy on to future generations- while there is still time.

A Documentary by Christina Melton.

Funding Provided in Part by CAMELLIA BRAND BEANS.
