Deb Echo-Hawk, Keeper of the Seeds at Pawnee Seed Preservation, shares her passion for farming with future generations. “Our community is growing more aware of the garden. And, what brings joy to my life was hearing a young boy say that when he grows up he’s going to be a farmer – so he can grow this. And, that’s what we need because we’ve skipped some generations of our farmers.”
