MOSES Executive Director Faye Jones said of the award, “Organic farming is about stewardship…the Podolls showcase the values integrated in certified organic production: stewardship of soil, water and other natural resources while supporting diversity in both crops and the wild.”
“Farming must be an artful venture,” David Podoll said. “Seeds are a sacred thing. Everything we have now is built on farmers selecting seeds for millennia. All of that genetic diversity is a great gift. Seeds should not be owned, patented, or controlled.”
Our heartfelt thanks to the Board and Staff at MOSES for honoring our farm's efforts to steward the seed; and to all of our teachers, mentors, co-learners, and co-creators who have contributed so greatly to the success of our farm and organic agriculture.
