The Seed Huntress-is an endurance race ethnobotanist on a hunt to preserve the biodiversity of our wild and cultivated lands through seed conservation. Sefra leads -The Ecotype Project - to amplify the amount of truly local native seed available for ecological restoration, creating the first ecoregional seed supply chain in the Northeast, USA. In 2020 she began BOATanical.org where she guides expeditions that are paddlin’ for the pollinators, planting native plants by boat along riparian corridors. Sefra holds her M.A.T. in agroecological education from Cornell University, is a fellow of the Global Crop Diversity Trust, a WINGS WorldQuest expedition flag carrier, member of the Explorers Club and runs a wilderness skills school-The Readiness Collective- with her twin brother.
