Green Festival

  We spent the past two days at one of our favorite local festivals, only this time, we were vendors.  It was such an incredible experience for us to be on the other side of the table, per se and interface with the community in this way.  It was the public unveiling of our Founders Collection  and what an incredible response we received from  everyone.  Most of all what touched us was the amount of gratitude we received from people, young and old.  Tears were shed and hearts were met while our seeds were exchanging hands.  Several of our collections were purchased to be taken to other countries such as Ecuador and Eritrea.  We had the honor of donating a collection to a woman working with widows in the Congo as well as to   Melinda Kramer, Founder and Co-director of Women’s Earth Alliance, who was on here way to Uttar Pradesh, India.  Melinda and WEA are  hosting the 2011 India Women, Food and Climate Change Training Program, led by The India Women and Food Initiative partners with Indian grassroots groups and leaders to provide ecological farming training, appropriate technology, rights education, and seed funding to grassroots Indian women leaders and farmers to improve their food and economic security, preserve the environment and traditional knowledge, and build political will.  Such beautiful opportunities were presented to us that we know we will continue to see the ripples for years to come!
