Author, Matshona Dhliwayo, said, “A seed is a forest inside out.” What a deduction! I take this breadth of view and apply it to the prairie seeds I hold in my hand. These seeds are the prairie inside out. I imagine miniscule blades of grass swaying in the wind, flower heads popping open in response to the morning sun, and honey bees buzzing from petal to petal, all within the seed walls. One of our friends is a restoration ecologist, and he brought us two bags of seeds to start the prairie restoration project at Keewaydin. We have our work cut out for us, but I can’t wait to see these seeds turned inside out, transforming the landscape and further diversifying life on the farm.
