As I sat with Jill last week I learned how she fell in love while interning. This love affair forever transformed her life. Truth be told, it was not quite love at first sight, but almost. The farm she had selected for her internship was well-known for its heirloom tomatoes and one of Jill's roles there was to save thousands of seeds from all these tomatoes. "That's a bit of a gross job," Jill tells me, "there's lots of fermentation, there's mold but then when it clears out, you see all the seeds."

Nourish is currently working with Peterborough Community Garden Network to grow a new dream: establishing a Community Seed Bank. Creating a seed bank offers an opportunity to access seed and education while building community. Ultimately it enhances our region's biodiversity and grows our collective resilience.
