Kiss the ground

This Thanksgiving weekend is a good time to thank the Earth for providing all our food.

Because the trees, the plants, the crops are listening . . .

Emigdio Ballon, a Quechua man from Bolivia, is an agronomist and plant geneticist who cofounded Seeds of Change, a Santa Fe company promoting biodiversity by growing and selling organic seeds.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
—Rumi, trans. Coleman Barks
