HS 301 – FBF – “How Hybrid Seeds Ruined America” with John Lipscomb

Bookmark and Share

Today’s Flash Back Friday takes us to June 2011, where we met John Lipscomb on Episode 51.

Is gardening a lost art? Does the difference between hybrid and heirloom seeds matter? Jason Hartman talks with the founder of El Dorado Heirloom Seeds, John Lipscomb, to discuss the changing environment in seeds.

John Lipscomb founded his company with $2,000 and less than a pound of his own garden heirloom seeds (which he counted and inserted into envelopes at his dining room table). Working on a cash basis with no debt, the company now employs 15 people, and may generate more than $5 million in sales in a year. John wrote an article called HOW HYBRID SEEDS RUINED AMERICA.
