the year is drawing to a close...

Its been a quiet time of late yet little time for posting at this homage to the seed blog!

I've just added a post at my other blog before I get stuck in to my studio work. Pop over and read what's been happening there. From that post:

In my latest E-NEWSLETTER sent out last week I celebrated the people and places I visited on my UK Research Trip. Quite an exhausting process it was recalling details and documenting it all, checking facts and links, so much so that once it went out I more or less came to a stand still. On the computer that is.

 The E-newsletter is a very comprehensive picture of the Uk experiences and introduces the places and various people I met. If you find the time do have a scroll through and perhaps take a link to read more about the Eden Project and Millennium Seedbank for starters.

a few images from Seed Capsules tumblr:

I will be back soon... 
          wishing you all a most pleasant holiday season and time to replenish for the coming year!

putting together a Newsletter

Its been a huge week trying to collate all the stories that made up my UK Research Trip.
I'm just about to send it out... so I will post it here for you if you'd like to read it.

In the meantime a few photos...

A xmas present from a wonderful friend that I was delighted to receive the other day:

handmade goodies...

a seed necklace she found and polished up

                                                                   her own chai recipe

                                                                     seeds from her garden

Such a thoughtful, aromatic and throughly delightful gift! What are you creating this year to give?

NB: The previous post contained a video from U-tube that someone sent me recently. Don't know why I couldn't add text when reblogging the this is the reference:

Jeremiah "Jere" Gettle has always been passionate about saving seeds. He is the founder of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, and speaks to CHOW at his seed bank in Petaluma, California.
