The garden was always put in during early spring, and we would watch through the kitchen window as the days got longer and the plants got taller. What we managed to save from the deer and rabbits we would give to Granny, and she took that abundance and gave us back love that kept us strong during our own growing seasons.
Heirloom seeds and plants are living evidence of centuries of Cherokee agricultural history and practice. These seeds sustain us - physically as food on our tables and spiritually through the familial and cultural connections made when we cultivate them. These strong roots make us strong Cherokee people.
