I think if I had life to live all over again, I'd of been a farmer, or agriculturist. or gardener.
It's so satisfying, and so powerful to grow your own food.


Mohawk seed keeper Terrylynn Brant aims to help next generation grow traditional foods
'Everything in our being is about agriculture ... agriculture’s in our blood'

Growing her own food is in Terrylynn Brant's blood.

"Everything in our being is about agriculture," Brant said, standing in one of her six gardens in Ohsweken, Ont., where she is growing plants to collect their seeds.



"There's so many foods that we have and enjoy that make us strong emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, that we couldn't continue to exist as Haudenosaunee people if we didn't continue to eat the foods of our ancestors."



She said the Haudenosaunee people "are an agricultural society" and she grew up with family that grew their own food.
