A new year will be upon us, let's lay some new seeds and start anew. Our spring Read It & Eat box is focused on fruits & seeds! This book & food subscription box is extra special because it includes entirely Buffalo-based businesses!

Did you know that the #2 Goal of the United Nations is Zero Hunger. To do so, the UN outlined multiple key targets under that goal and one focused entirely on food and seed diversity:

"2.5 By 2020, maintain the genetic diversity of seeds, cultivated plants and farmed and domesticated animals and their related wild species, including through soundly managed and diversified seed and plant banks at the national, regional and international levels, and promote access to and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, as internationally agreed."

This is why I was SO inspired to create this fruit & seeds box and work with the African Heritage Food Co-Op. We can all do our part and plant some seeds this spring also learn how to harvest them ourselves and preserve this seeds!"
