From Beth Corymb Everett: Our largest attended seed festival so far: approximately 42 attendees including a van load of friends from Omaha 7 hours away who camped at the farm and Verna Kragnes-Rich Hall van load from North Dakota plus a few locals from NE and CO! Click the link or image above to see a little of our efforts! Thank you Wally for sharing the vids and photos.

At the 2022 Seed Festival, we made up a new dance with lemnicates to dance on the seed and look and experience metamorphosis etc. Thank you to the Living Environment Foundation and friends who made the time to attend and help thresh the MH vegetable seed!
