Join Southeast Green as we speak with Carol Koury, President of Sow True Seed.
Carol is a life-long gardener, having spent her childhood summers in the 1940s and 50s in New Hampshire helping her grandma and family grow and preserve all the food she and her family ate. She had careers in wildlife conservation and the women's health movement, before coming back to her gardening roots. In 2009 she founded Sow True Seed, an open-pollinated seed company based in Asheville, NC. Sow True sells 500 varieties of open-pollinated vegetable, herb and flower seed in the Southeast and throughout North America. Carol’s passion is for helping people understand where their food comes from so they can be informed consumers.
In 2011 STS joined a consortium of family farmers, small seed companies and advocacy groups to challenge Monsanto's patents on genetically engineered seed and seeking relief for farmers who were being sued when their crops were unintentionally contaminated by upwind GE pollen. We lost at the Federal Appeals level for lack of standing because none of us had been sued by Monsanto - but the Appeals Court did indicate concern about Monsanto's lawsuits and giving hope that farmer's seeking relief through the court system might have a more sympathetic ear (should they be able to afford going up against Monsanto)!.
Join Southeast Green as we continue our month long series on GMOs and education. We will be interviewing Melinda Hicks, creator and momtrepreneur of Little Me Tea.
It all started with a search for a truly healthy kids’ drink for our baby girl, Julia. The 100% juices were loaded with sugar. Flavored waters lacked nutrition. Even so-called “healthy” organic brands added cane sugar. No thanks!
So Melinda and Michael Hicks set out to create a better drink for children based on something as pure and wholesome as nature itself — tea. Some call it nature’s wonder drug, and it’s no wonder. From this little green leaf comes a powerhouse of beneficial nutrients like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Little Me Tea is a delicious blend of caffeine-free tea kicked up with fruit and vegetable juices. It’s rich in nutrients, super-low in sugar, Non-GMO and organic to the core. In today’s polluted, nutrient-deficient world, our children need a true force of nature to keep them healthy and strong. That’s why we created Little Me Tea — the healthiest kids’ drink on the planet.
With passion and unwavering ambition, Sally Larsen finds the perfect balance of health and beauty with Sally B’s Skin Yummies, her handmade line of natural and organic skincare products and makeup. A firm believer that health and beauty are dependent upon one another, the self-confessed “product girl” began making her own good-for-your products in 2003 when she noticed a void in the organic skincare market. What began as a personal journey to replace her chemical-rich beauty products quickly turned into an in-demand hobby among her friends, motivating Sally to found Sally B’s Skin Yummies in 2005.
Launching Sally B’s Skin Yummies with just two products, her now famous Shea Butter Bar and Healing Hand Butter, Sally established Skin Yummies to share the positive benefits of a healthy beauty regime with the world and also stake her own personal claim in the organics industry, the “unofficial Larsen family business.” While she wasn’t exactly raising bees and harvesting her own honey like her father, she spent countless hours researching and testing organic and natural ingredients as alternatives to preservatives, chemical additives and harsh irritants often found in beauty products. As she learned, created and experimented, her initial small offering grew into a product line of over 30 must-have lotions, potions and other good-for-you creams.
