There is something compelling about plunging my hands into a sack of dry beans! It's not just the feeling of it on my skin; to me all seeds are little wonders: a plant grows from this comparatively small thing with the help of air, water, sun and soil and then produces masses more seeds. Obviously there is a whole science behind it and many things can go unexpectedly, too. Working with Vital Seeds gives me a chance to be
part of that full life cycle of plants. It also gives me an opportunity to be part of building a more diverse and sustainable food system that I believe we need to create a healthy environment where people now and of future generations can provide for themselves. I grew up in Germany, studied agricultural sciences (BSc) and have worked as a grower, cook, and land/food based facilitator of experiential learning since.
