Heritage Crops & Seedkeeping at Soul Fire Farm: “We grow dozens of native crops as well as culturally significant African heritage crops. Some of our cherished plant friends at the farm include bee balm, echinacea, moyamensing tomato, West African garden egg, pwa congo, Lenape blue corn, and Eritrean basil. Each year, we save 3-5 seed varieties that are distributed through the Truelove seed catalog.” Soul Fire Farm
