In preparing for my upcoming trip to visit all our project, I was looking around for a good gift to bring to the folks i'll be visiting. Something useful, but not too large. Something fun, but not too heavy. Something that could be shared by many, but that would not rot their teeth. Hum...what to get?
Well, I just discovered the neatest heirloom seed site. It is called Annie's Heirloom Seeds and they have been so generous with us at AFCA. Because of them, I am taking with me tons of seeds for our various programs in Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo and ZImbabwe. I can't wait to see Martin and Steven's faces when I give them tomato seeds (all different colors of tomatoes - red, purple, white, yellow, orange), squashes, onions, peppers, kale, greens, okra, melons, and much more.
The great thing is that these seeds will produce fruit which will produce seeds which can be replanted. That is the beauty of heirloom seeds! These will be perfect introducing new types of foods (very colorful ones) while allowing the folks to save some seeds for the next year.
Thank you, Annie's Heirloom Seeds - can't wait to show you photos of kids eating those purple and orange tomatoes!
