Zoe Jeka

Zoe Jeka

Zoe is finding it hard to put into words how important seeds are to her. Over the past few years, they have become some of her closest family members and biggest teachers. She spends so much time growing Polish and German heirlooms that she didn't know who Gumby was until 2018. Even though her time in Philly has come to a close, she knows her seedkeeping work and relationship to Truelove will be lifelong. Instagram: @zoejeka.
