Seeds

“…replant Seeds into welcoming ground, and once again cultivate into purpose a real, livable viable array of ritual seed cultures worth descending from.

My journey connecting with the Natural world began after graduating college. I wanted to find ways to meet my own needs instead of seeking out others. One method I found was growing my own food, later shifting to medicine and now is expanded to include:
-food
-medicine
-fibers
-pigments and
-tools!

My relationship with Seeds allows me to live in harmony with the land and tell the plant based stories of my African Ancestry.

We encourage Seed saving at home. We prioritize the cultivation and distribution of home harvested, open source, organic, heirloom, wild and cultural Seeds to People Of Heritage (Of Colour). Our vision is to once again have Seeds shared collectively and freely among our people as is our 10,000 year old tradition. We believe Seeds teach:
-interdependence
-cultural values
-communal harmony and
-deep Ancestral wisdom.
