Brian Ward

Research Scientist / Clemson, SC

Title: Research Scientist
Location: Clemson, SC

Why he's a big deal: Ward is a research scientist with Clemson University’s Coastal Research & Education Center and is on the board of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation. As a heirloom seed saver, Ward says that it is important to preserve heirloom seeds not only for drought and disease resistance, but as a means to uncover culinary histories that reveal how generations before us lived and shared life.
