What’s going on?

Well it’s been a while but there is lots going on, exciting events, fundraising, a larger seed bank and lots of more!

Crowd Funding for our Community Seed Bank

We love our seed bank and hope you do to! We want to open the Seed Studio in spring and need you help! We have 60 days starting today to fundraise $1000! But the more money we can fundraise the more seed we can give away in spring. Please donate here

The seed is free but I would love an exchange of stories, memories, drawings, produce, seed, found objects….. These are the seeds which my art grow from!  We need glass jars and seeds.
