Meeting Up With My Seed Folks for ECOSGN 2019!

Last weekend was the latest ECOSGN gathering.

It was amazing!

ECOSGN is the Eastern Canadian Organic Seed Growers Network.

This year we met in Montreal at Santropol Roulant for 2 half days of activities and then came to Tourne-Sol Farm where I led a tour.

I Love My Seed Folks!

We definitely talk a lot of shop.

But over the 10+ years we’ve been meeting, we’ve also become family.

This is the time I can catch up with everyone about our farms, our families, and our lives.

From L to R Teprine Baldo, Johanne Paquet Sioui, Greta Kryger, Kim Delaney, Stephen McComber, Heron Breen, and Dan Brisebois (that’s me!)
