I made this presentation a while ago about my co-workers and the work up at the seedbank. Enjoy!

For all you plant nerds out there…

I’ve been going through reams of books and countless databases as part of my research for our seed catalogue that we hope to open on-line in April (gulp!).  I came across this simple but comprehensive video on the rice bean (Vigna umbellata) and why it benefits the poor, about it subsistence farmers who grow in the the mountains of Nepal.

It’s a neglected, thumb under-used crop that has so many advantages in making soil better, visit web feeding animals, and as a good food source…we LOVE these characteristics at the seedbank!  Rice bean is part of our seedbank inventory and we source it from local farmers in Chiang Dao district. Take 10 minutes and watch it!  Reminds me so much of the folks we work with here in northern Thailand.
