Beans, beans, beans
Beans for our small action IE project, "Jack's Beanstalks", at the Wellwood Park Tennis Courts include Provider Green beans and Golden Rocky beans from the Experimental Farm Network, a seed program that facilitates collaborative plant breeding and sustainable agriculture research in order to fight global climate change, preserve the natural environment, and ensure food security for humanity into the distant future. They believe participatory plant breeding on a massive scale can lead to breakthroughs to help us not only adapt to climate change, but one day actually stabilize the climate. We will also be planting Red Silk beans from True Love Seeds, a seed company offering rare, open pollinated, and culturally important vegetable, herb, and flower seeds. Our seeds are grown by more than 20 small-scale urban and rural farmers committed to community food sovereignty, cultural preservation, and sustainable agriculture.
