Seed Sages is an educational endeavor that is based in the Twin Cities and offers seed services in many regional areas throughout the midwest and beyond. We provide seed consultations, designs, trainings, and research for seed production.
Our mission is to re-skill our garden and farm communities in the art of seed saving and breeding to strengthen the foundation of our local food systems: our seed systems.
Koby Jeschkeit-Hagen, Founder and Guide
Koby Jeschkeit-Hagen is one seed saver along a long line of great teachers and breeders before her. While her daytime job farm management and community outreach coordination, seed stewardship and biodiversity conservation is a driving force behind her work. Starting out as an intern at a small, family-owned CSA in Colorado, she continued her farm sabbatical for several years to work at educational, research, biointensive, urban youth, and seed-saving farms across the country, including Emandal Farm, JD Rivers Children’s Garden, Seed Savers Exchange, Seeds of Change, and Ecology Action. With a masters in Community and Regional Planning (Environment and Natural Resources emphasis), a PDC from the Permaculture Drylands Institute, and a permaculture teacher certificate, she draws on many approaches to share diverse seed saving, farming and community-building methods. If you ever fail to find her apart from seed work, she can be found spending time with her family, growing food, cooking, running/biking, and laughing/teasing/being silly.
