Last week I was able to join Steve Peters with some of his trials he is doing over at Fifth Crow farm in Pescadero. Steve was the seed production manager at Seeds of change before they were bought out by Mars and closed their operation. I met Steve at Seed School in Arizona in 2010 wil Bill McDorman and we have been conversing since. Mostly about the revolution that is needed within the seed industry and how to collaborate in making that happen. 

Steve is a wealth of information and inspiration and was one of the first i reached out to when thinkin of how we were going to create a bio-regional seed hub here on the central coast, and he and his wife Moria live just over the hill in San Mateo! 

Steve started a couple of seed selection trials of Broccoli, Chinese cabbage and now some peas and is selecting for the size, vigor, posture and resilience  in a couple of beds at Fifth Crow. This last week we took out any remaining straglers who weren't making the cut and were left with a little over 100 plants of each after her had started with 700+.
The best part is you get to eat the rejects! Made a huge batch of kraut from the cabbage and the broccoli is outstanding! Below are a few pictures from the selection process.

Nicely forming Broccoli head,  OP variety marked for seed. Will harvest the central head and then allow side shoots to flower. Not as massive and tight as the hybrid varieties but the flavor is out of this world!

So those of you who have been apart of the California real estate market in the last decade have an idea of time, energy, money, hope and higher callings you have when buying a piece of land. After a few months of visioning, creating and many discussions we have officially partnered with The Peninsula Open Space Trust  in the land acquisition of Cornerstone Farms which we are very excited about. POST has been preserving open space for the last 35 years.

The staff at POST have been very supportive and are excited about what we are creating. Two weeks ago we did a basic walk through of the farm, it's infrastructure, mapped the site and painted the picture of what we were envisioning. Last year POST had launched a farmland protection program and our model fits nicely into their goals. 

 We all first met in February and have cultivated a great relationship. POST is very interested in collaborating in our ideas of building a new model of land stewardship through Regenerative Agriculture practices in combination with Ohlone practices in tending the wild. The plan is within a 5 year timeframe the ownership of the land will transfer into an Ohlone Community Land Trust that is lead by a collective tribal council. This council represents the fracture bay area Ohlone community. The land we are working for in Half Moon Bay will give the Ohlone a space to come together and dance and have ceremony to build story again in a good way for generations to come. 
We are the keepers of seeds for the field of our culture. The food we eat makes us who we are and the inherient potential is nested within the genetics of those seeds. As a farm we will farm ideas, art, organic seeds and alot of fun along the way. We also realise this will take time in this transitional period we find ourselves in. Transitioning 
This is the root of all modern day depression:the loss of the ability to feed the Divine in Nature by our inborn Human Beauty of speech and culture. This abilty is a seed and endangered, These are the seeds we must keep alive." Martin Pretchtel
