"Summer Rejuvenation Moon"

This is the heart of summer. A time when farmers are at their field. They are observing any pests and other animals that are affecting their plants. They are conducting pest control, applying any needed shading for their plants, and weeding. While at their fields, farmers are developing a relationship with their plants. They are caring for them as they would their own children, nurturing and protecting them.

What We Offer

"Of all the farmers in the Southwest, the Hopi, the westernmost Pueblo Indians, were the best dryland farmers. Corn was (and continues to be) their most important crop. Although they did not know about cross-pollination, the women were skilled at seed selection, and they did not choose kernels from an ear they believed to be a mixture of two varieties. Consequently Hopi corn has remained  pure."

Hurt, R.D. (1987)
