  • Dear Mugove!!! loving the simplicity and depth of your work. The connection between us as humans and each of the plants of the world… if we listen more there would be no separation, a continuum of understanding, learning and mutual support between all the elements, beings, wonders of the territories.
    Lots of love from Colombia

    Thank you to both. Seed property is also an issue here in Europe, it is not allow for the farmers to call “seeds” or to sell their own ones, there are exchanges between seeds networks but they cannot be certified…hope you win the battle there in Zambia
