Kindly visit the Estancia Public Library for more information.

The Inspiration:

“How all of this came about was over a year ago when Nancy and Greg (our beloved seed keepers) were here working they decided that in order for this project of the Seed Temple to work we need to bring in local folks and get them involved”.

“When we speak of our plants and medicine the protocol is we start in our homes first. We teach our children, our grand children, We extend around our block and so on till we encompass our community.”
