From the Author
isn't your typical bleak, violent dystopia. Think Fahrenheit 451
meets Little House on the Prairie. Seed Savers
take place in a not-too-distant future where gardening is illegal, corporations own the seeds, and real food is no longer available. Three children are on a quest to learn about gardening and make a change back to the old ways.
The idea for Seed Savers came to me while I was watching the documentary Food, Inc. In it, a man whose occupation was a seed cleaner was being sued by Monsanto. The narrator gave statistics on how few seed cleaners still existed in America. I thought, "Wow, I've never even heard of 'seed cleaner' as an occupation." One thought led to another, and soon I was imagining a time when someone might not know what a seed was... Seed Savers was born.
