Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler

The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Kinship Gardening Maps-the core of biodiversity conservation

I have been corresponding back and forth with Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds and former Research director of Seeds Of Change, via e-mail recently about an interview in the near future for both this blog as well as the Homegrown Goodness Message Board


We will be conducting the interview in the next few weeks so if you have any questions about Alan Kapuler's amazing work, please let me know so I can pass them along during the interview.

Alan was kind enough to send me the following new Kinship Diagrams as well as this message:

Latest updates on the bed diagram-kinship gardening maps using the APGII system
best to you

Very Cool! I would be so intimidated! It would be great to read up on his most recent writings. Then I would have a clue what to ask him.

Ask about his family, how are they doing, etc. Find out what he really thinks of companies like Monsanto and Dow. Have him comment on Kinship Gardening and Fall and Winter Gardening. And how is life after Seeds of Change. What does he feel are his greatest achievements, career-wise? and which of his projects/endeavors frustrated and disappointed him the most, and why. What is new for the future. Looking forward to the interview!
