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.

A Year in Search of Seeds and Hope! blog

Was exploring some links here on the site earlier tonight and came across an interesting blog, here, written by a Thomas J. Watson Fellow who used his grant to travel the world in search of seeds and sustainable agriculture. Most of the blogs are short and to the point, but some wonderful insight can be gained from reading them and the pictures are wonderful.

I'll have to contact this fellow and see just what seeds he manged to get back to the states, some interesting diversity is featured in the posts which once seed is increased could be of great value to sustainable farmers, seed savers, and independent plant breeders.
