Seed Planting at Sol Sanctuary on Black Friday
Our Team gathered the day after Thanksgiving to give back to the land rather than shopping for Black Friday. Led by Raphael DiGenova, our planting was inspired by Ali Medders-Knight, a local Mechoopda Tribe member, in conjunction with the planting at Verbena Fields in Chico, California both Thursday and Friday. Raphael has bins of sorted seeds, labeled for elevation where the plants grow. Mostly what was planted came from the riparian bin as the meadows of Sol Sanctuary are right along a little creek. We also scattered a wildflower seed mix. All seeds have been hand gathered locally by Raphael. It is our hope that these plants take root and offer a living seed library that will be harvestable to spread to the burn scars in widening areas in the coming years.
