Seed Savers finds new President and Executive Director

What a small world: Just to the north of us is Delaware Ohio, a cute little community which happens to be my wife’s home town. Delaware Ohio also happens to be the home town of Seed Saver’s new Director, George DeVault.

Mr. DeVault said, “For me, this is not just a job. It’s more a mission. Seed Savers combines the best of everything I have worked for all of my life as a journalist, organic farmer and gardener. It’s a natural fit. I have known Seed Savers’ founders, Kent and Diane, personally for going on 20 years, and have nothing but the highest respect for their pioneering spirit, vision, and accomplishments. Seed Savers is doing more than preserving and passing along our garden heritage. It is safeguarding our future food and our food future. Becoming the steward of Seed Saver’s legacy is both a great honor and truly awesome responsibility.”
