Casey is an urban farmer and seed saver with 16 years experience growing a diverse variety of fresh vegetables and seed crops on rented land in Boise, Idaho, one of the fastest growing cities in the country. She also co-founded and manages the Snake River Seed Cooperative, which works with around 50 Intermountain West farmers to grow our bioregional seedshed. Casey is fascinated by questions of past and present land use in the West. Her educational philosophy lives at the intersection of place, history, and community, empowering students to explore their roles and how they fit. Her educational offerings engage students toward a deeper understanding of the intricate ecologies of the places they live, alongside the complex histories whose legacies shape the world we inhabit today. She is a devoted student of intersectional feminism and anti-racism and approaches her work through these lenses as well.
 
Don Tipping has been farming and offering hands on, practical workshops at Seven Seeds Farm since 1997. Seven Seeds is a small, organic family farm in the Siskiyou Mountains of SW Oregon that produces fruits, vegetables, seeds, flowers and herbs, while raising sheep, poultry and people. The farm has been designed to function as a self-contained, life regenerating organism with waste products being recycled and feeding other elements of the system. Lauded as one of the best examples of a small productive Biodynamic and Permaculture farms in the northwest by many, Seven Seeds helps to mentor new farmers through internships and workshops. In 2009 we began Siskiyou Seeds, a bioregional organic seed company that grows and stewards a collection of over 700 open pollinated flower, vegetable and herb seeds and is constantly breeding new varieties that we distribute nationally. Siskiyou Seeds produces about 50% of the seed at our home farm and then sources the remainder from a network of organic seed growers throughout the PNW. Don is active in the Seed Stewardship movement and educates regionally on seed saving through the Seed Academy, the Student Organic Seed Symposium, Seed Schools and numerous conferences. He sits on the board of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance and contributes to the Open Source Seed Initiative.
