"Heirloom seeds are food awaiting to happen." - Dr. William Woys Weaver
Beginning in 2018, supporters for Roughwood and Dr. William Woys Weaver’s work came together and began planting the seed for an organization that would be dedicated to heritage foods from heritage seeds. Something unique and unlike any others out there. During 2021, The Roughwood Center for Heritage Seedways was formed, holding within it the Roughwood Seed Collection as a key part of its educational purpose.
