It is with immense gratitude to the amaranth that we have been able to strengthen our communities while traveling throughout Guatemala, New Mexico, and California. Through the planting, care, and harvest of the amaranth plant, an indigenous crop to Mesoamerica, we deepen our ties to each other, the land, and the ways we collectively work towards the health of both. The relationships formed around amaranth continue after the harvest as we collectivity work to determine our food and agriculture systems. The amaranth seed connects us all.
