We are Walking Roots Farm, and “daggawalla” is the label we have created for distributing our seeds and plant medicines. We have been farming in Cascadia since 2005.

We believe that plant medicine is effective, and that growing your own food is a key to health. We are excited to share our seeds and medicine with you.  Tending to our herbs with attention and focus, we know when to harvest at peak value. With our seed-saving, we have been selecting for traits such as hardiness, flavor, productivity and color. Fellow Cascadians might be especially interested in planting our seeds since they were grown here, but most of our offerings would also thrive in other areas.

M. R. Sellars. We know him as Merv. As a member of the ITW (International Thriller Writers), M. R. Sellars is a relatively unassuming homebody who, in his own words, considers himself just a “guy with a lot of nightmares and a word processing program.” Legend has it he started making up stories to entertain a stuffed bear during his single digit years, then began writing them down sometime around his early teens when the growing catalog of fiction started causing him to experience migraines. Although he had several short stories and newspaper articles published during his early adult life, it wasn’t until 2000 that his first full-length novel, Harm None:  A Rowan Gant Investigation, hit bookstore shelves, officially launching the acclaimed paranormal thriller series. In order to satisfy his lifelong dream of being a satirical humor columnist for a major metropolitan newspaper, twice each week he removes his glasses, dons blue tights and a red cape, then blogs about the incredibly bizarre world that is his life as a writer, husband, and father. It has been said that his blog articles sometimes blur the line between fiction and reality. To that Sellars responds, “What line?”
