Seeds are on my mind often, even when I'm not playing with them. I think about how they are grown. I imagine the plant breeders and farmers cultivating these seeds, and I wonder how many other people are thinking about seeds also.
I buy my seeds from local producers, or save them from plants that will produce for me. I teach others how to save seed, and talk about the dangers of consolidation of the seed system to anyone who will listen. I have been working on this for quite some time through the seed bank I started, but now I am preparing to take it to a larger audience. As I work on my next seed project, I wonder what people's concerns and questions are- not gardening questions- but questions about the seed system. How they get from the field to the packet to your mailbox.
If you're curious, go ahead and ask- this is what I'm thinking about right now, and your questions will help me create a useful body of work.
