City/Country: Tesuque, New Mexico
Since the start of widespread industrial agriculture roughly 50 years ago - we have lost over 75% of our agricultural biodiversity. The seeds that we are loosing are strong ancestral varieties that have been passed carefully from generation to generation. They are seeds who hold the knowledge and abundance that we need to stay strong and nourish ourselves through the building climate crisis. Seeds are the source of life - and we cannot allow them to continue to be stolen, destroyed, tampered with and sold by industrial agriculture corporations. As a woman for climate justice - I stand to grow, save, guard and share the incredible diversity of local native seeds in Northern New Mexico. I stand in solidarity and service to the Indigenous peoples of this land as we work together to protect the sacred beans, corn, squash and chiles of the region. Support YOUR local seed savers, farmers and stewards of the land and water.
