For many people, the answer is TOMATOES.
Jillian Bishop believes that her obsessive start into gardening was spurred by these little fruits we call tomatoes. After her initial connection with tomatoes, she started saving seeds anywhere she could at her Ontario, Canada home, while also completing the RMSA Seed School Teacher Training program. Now she has an incredible seed company, Urban Tomato, and continues to inspire her community to save heirloom seeds.

*Just last week, the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance (RMSA) graduated 60 seed teachers into the world! We had students from Norway, Costa Rica, Ireland, Bolivia, Australia, Greece, and all across North America. With more seed teachers, we know our mission to inspire more gardeners to become seeds teachers is increased 60 fold! Thank you and congrats to all the new seed teachers changing the world!
