Saving Seeds Supports Sustainability


As a child I was amazed how a tiny seed could grow into such a luscious plant. I learned what it meant to have a “green thumb” by carefully watching my relatives who gardened; some tended the soil which nourished the seeds while others left the seeds to fend for themselves. After decades of gardening I’ve better grasped how the seed is both catalyst and medium bringing the earth’s nutrients, the biosphere’s water and the sun’s energy into a life-generating process. With deepening understanding it seems even more miraculous.
