The word “heirloom” means a treasured possession that has remained in a family for generations. In today’s episode you’ll learn why seeds need to be treasured and preserved more than any family trinket.

Quotes of the Week
The seed has no idea of being some particular plant, but it has its own form and is in perfect harmony with the ground, with its surroundings … and there is no trouble. This is what we mean by naturalness.
— Shrunyu Suzuki (from Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind)
