Planting Seeds Project

The Planting Seeds Project, founded in 1991, has toured the province, giving educational workshops, gifting diverse seed varieties of open-pollinated seeds.  Saved and replanted, these seeds become more acclimated, and grow better than at first.  In 2000, Mojave Kaplan moved the project to the west side of Lytton hosted at Stein Mountain Farm for ten years.  Mojave continues to grow and distribute certified organic open-pollinated seeds, along with training others in workshops and developing gardens and greenhouses in the area.  A re-introduction of the craft of seed saving often brings out the people who are still saving seeds.  As is true in Lytton, where many of the elders have carried on this tradition, where unbroken and speckled beans are among the specialties here.
