When it comes to resiliency, there is nothing that inspires us more than native plants. Their ability to survive in the most extreme conditions is remarkable and inspiring. When we think about food sovereignty native edibles should be on the top of our list, because they literally don’t need anything beyond what is already provided by the sun and rain. They ebb and flow with the seasons, and it is a lesson for us all in times of change.
