News from the Farm…
We are endlessly humbled, inspired and grateful to be in community with farmers, organizers, retailers and CSA members who are working tirelessly to envision, manifest and/or support just & sustainable food systems.
Our friend Rowen White, a Seed Keeper from the Mohawk community of Akwesasne, now based on her seed sanctuary farm in Northern CA, has been doing the ancient and vital work of seed saving since her days at Hampshire College in the late 90’s.
