Project in progress
What is your wish for this project?
To create awareness about the ancient traditional crops that were grown in North America and sustained humans and other species before the age of modern agriculture. To conserve and strengthen these genetic resources for generations that follow us to feed humans and animals as the climate changes.
How are you going to do it?
Create a small pilot group of new growers that will learn how to take care of the corn including how to maintain the population size so the corn does not suffer from inbreeding depression or the corn types eventually become weak because of not maintaining them correctly. Learn to improve the crops and work together as a group to maintain these seeds banks. Learn the history of these crops, how to prepare them for food and continue to protect the genetic resources.
