Construction of a seed and storage facility for medicinal plants, November 2017, Otavalo, Ecuador
HAMPIRIPACHA MURU WASI
With few native seeds in the region and indeed throughout indigenous communities, we have sought to bring together those who continue to grow, cultivate and consume products that will soon be scarce.
The objective is to:
- Build up a reserve of seeds and medicinal plants
- Teach people how to care for and produce native seeds
- Promote the importance of growing and consuming natural products that grow in the area.
In this way we will strengthen our indigenous sovereignty and generate a space where knowledge can be shared with regards the care and production of native seeds both from this region and further afield.
