The Heirloom Collard Project is a collaboration between Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, Seed Savers Exchange, Working Food, and the Utopian Seed Project. This project aims to build a coalition of seed stewards, gardeners, farmers, chefs, and seed companies working to preserve heirloom collard varieties and their culinary heritage.
UCFA is collecting 'Collard Stories' as part of our work with The Heirloom Collard Project. Check out some heart warming stories about collards. Consider sharing your collard story with us.
Listen as Ira Wallace (Southern Exposure Seed Exchange) and Chris Smith (Utopian Seed Project) discuss January collards, eating and growing collards, some ideas around plant selection, and what to expect as spring spurs new growth for your surviving collards.
