In Memory of Amy Hetager

Amy Hetager was a remarkable woman with a powerful vision.  Five years ago when she found out she had cancer she decided to dedicate her life to build a community of people dedicated to growing and sharing their own food so she initiated Home Grown New Mexico and the Santa Fe Seed Exchange. Amy, a master gardener, was also involved with many local organizations such as Frenchy's Community Garden and the Milagro Community garden.
SeedBroadcast met Amy two years ago and we were honored to work with her on the 2013 Santa Fe Seed Exchange where Amy shared her story of her grandmother's gifting of seeds. Unfortunately she could not attend this years seed event but her vision and dreams were held by all who attended.

Amy sadly lost her battle to cancer and she will be sorely missed here in our community. Our deep respects go out to her family.
Amy left us an incredible gift of her inspired wisdom and dreams.........
