Jeff Quattrone is the Founder of Library Seed Bank. He started a blog a few years ago called Vanishing Feast, An Heirloom Solution. In the course of exploring the world of heirloom gardening by growing, reading, writing, and traveling to food movement events, Jeff concluded that he had put his skill, creativity, and experience with corporate and freelance marketing to something sustainable such as seed and food sovereignty.
