I completely agree!!! This was supposed to be a community garden. I stepped back from all MMIW positions in January bc I was going to offer a place for healing and let those that helped share in the harvest…now instead of growing this with my community I’m growing it for my community. Really hope come harvest we can have a celebration but if not will have a drop off bc like I’ve been saying for months we can’t decolonize our diets if no one is growing the food. I have the space and heard the call, glad I listened.

My understanding is that heirloom vegetables are more likely to be suited to garden-scale production. Some modern cultivars are great! Others are hybrids that you can’t save seeds from, or are bred to last a long time in grocery stores rather than to taste good. I think the important thing about any cultivar is that it taste good, grow well under local conditions wherever you are, and make seeds that will grow the same kind of plant next season, whether it’s an heirloom or not. I do like growing heirlooms just because it feels like those plants have a little extra storied-ness to them.
