The taste of freshly picked homegrown food is great! Working in the dirt grounds us, is therapeutic and really helps us to appreciate where good food comes from. The amazing biodiversity (as in the thousands of varieties of tomatoes or beans that exist for example) available to us is not properly represented in grocery stores and it never will be.
Check out our unique collection of old grains, especially wheats. All these dietary problems people seem to be facing with gluten have really sparked interest in einkorn wheat (the oldest type of wheat in cultivation, dating back about 10,000 years to the beginnings of agriculture).
Seeds are our shared culture, which means seeds carry stories. A seed, is where the majority of our food begins, without seeds we would have very little to eat. You can be a steward of different varieties of plants by saving and sharing seeds as well as the stories that go with them. The rich biodiversity in our food systems is being lost to mono cropping and highly mechanized/industrialized agriculture but we can change that by all becoming seed savers!
