The Garden’s Edge

The Garden’s Edge is facilitating cultural exchanges called Seed Travels led by Mayan farmers who will follow old trade routes from Guatemala to gardens in New Mexico, California, and New York, carrying with them traditional amaranth and cotton seeds. With local immigrants, Latinx, and Indigenous people, some who were separated from their ancestral lands, they will plant the seeds which they view as symbols of connections, interdependence, resistance and hope.
