Owen Taylor runs the Philadelphia Seed Exchange, facilitating seed swaps and workshops in partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia and other local groups and organizations. For the last four years, Owen managed the historic Roughwood Seed Collection in Devon, PA. He now grows open-pollinated seeds, medicinal herbs, and flowers to support his work with SeedKeeping, a food sovereignty-based collaboration between rural and urban farmers. SeedKeeping works with community-rooted farmers focused on preserving and proliferating culturally important heirloom seeds along with their stories, rituals, and the centuries of traditions contained within them. In addition, as a freelance facilitator, Owen trains farmers, cooks, educators, and other community leaders in how to effectively share their knowledge and skills using popular education, dialogue, and a participatory, hands-on approach.
