Shortly after seeing the incredible documentary The Garden, I found myself at a marigold seed harvest with a number of the people involved with trying to save the South Central Urban Farm. Preceding the harvest was a moving ceremony incorporating singing, drumming, and dancing. The marigolds we were harvesting are an heirloom variety that have been nurtured and harvested for generations. I get the impression is it imperative that I sing to these particular plants to encourage them to shine. Will do.
