Monday’s Muse

“I have a couple of words to describe farmers: innovative and generous. Plus they are absurdly nice – and kind. They are innovative as seed growers and they are so generous with that knowledge, sharing those innovations with the broader farming community. They are very much like nature, like seeds. We all know that if you plant one seed,  you have an abundance of seeds that follow. The generosity of plants – I can’t wrap my head around it – the generosity that comes from one plant compels you to share seeds…you will always have more than you need. It necessitates community.”

~ Aabir Dey, Director of The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security
