Heirloom seeds vs. hybrid seeds. What’s the difference? And why does it matter?
In this live show, Mark is talking with Morgan & Alex Mitchell, owners of ARK Seed Kits. They started ARK 15 years ago from their little 12x12ft garden downtown Traverse City, MI. Growing gardens has always been a main staple over many generations in their families which provided them with basic skills on how to grow their own vegetables. But 15 years ago, they decided to venture into growing only heirloom seeds, to provide higher quality tasting produce. From their first heirloom produce harvest, they learned how to save the seeds from multiple different varieties of plants. That was the start of their seed saving venture. From that first harvest, they had multiple requests from friends and family for a share of their seed harvest.
In the following year, their seed harvest grew as well as the demand for sharing their seed stock. That is where ARK (Agricultural Resource Kit) started.
Morgan & Alex are born and raised in Traverse City/Kingsley area. They have been married for 16 years and have 4 children.
