Sow a Story:
In 2009 I had a life-changing opportunity to spend four months in India. During my travels, I spend a month at Vandana Shiva’s Seed Bank Farm in Deraduhn, named Navdanya. These Tulsi seeds were gifted to me from one of the works there, Jeet, who always found the perfect moment to deliver you chai and always had a song to share. Navdanya is a magical farm, where much work is being done to educate local farmer to bring back the traditions of local breeding and seed saving, and to free themselves form the cycle of dependence brought on by the global seed industry.
