how did this come to be?
We never thought we'd do this:
Tuck seeds in blank packets.
And yet, in mid-March, we saw the writing on the wall. As seed packets were flying off our shelves, we had plenty of seeds in our cooler to share --- yet our packet supply was beginning to dwindle. We contacted our fabulous printer & though they're still in operation, they're functioning at a fraction of their capacity, with no timeline for us to anticipate receiving more packets.
We were able to find blank packets as our hearts sank, deflated at the thought of sharing seeds. In. Blank. Packets.
Ten seconds later my heart elated, realizing that this is the moment we inhabit: A blank slate, an open canvas, daunting & not at all what we ever would have wanted, yet the dawn of a new day.
We always talk about making the world more beautiful, more just, more creative, more resourceful.
So here we are:
We're paying artists, beloved friends, to create original art for our packets as we run out to make the world more beautiful, more possible and more collaborative.
