“Irene had already been helping neighbors and friends with their own edible gardens, and they encouraged her to turn her talent into a business. Heirloom Potager’s focus and niche has been encouraging clients to grow heirloom varietals, or seeds over 50 years old.

‘I find [heirlooms] special because they are a connection to our past and our present. They are an opportunity for us to reevaluate food and flavors. In the past 60 years we’ve lost a lot of that. For us, food is whatever’s available at the grocery store. We lost the idea of seasonality. This is a way for me to help encourage people to grow seasonally.’”
