Musical Message from Missoula, Montana

My friend, Bill McDorman is a seed saver. He and his wife, Belle Starr are the Executive and Deputy Directors of the Native Seeds Search, a wonderful organization dedicated to saving, distributing and documenting the adapted and diverse varieties of agricultural seeds of the American Southwest and northwest Mexico. I promise a future post about their incredibly important work but today I want to show you a fun video that Bill shared on facebook.

This brought such a smile to my face for the childhood talent, artistic direction and incredible message that I needed to share it.

I hope you enjoy this production as much as I do. I doubt these kids will ever forget this important message.

Are there other critical issues can we translate into song?

    This video is so much fun Tammy. I am going to forward it to our elementary school principal and some teachers I know. It may inspire future musical opportunities as well as continue the push for local coops, farmers and backyard growers as well. Thanks for sharing.

  7. The kids did a fabulous job. Great entertainment and message. I try to by local foods whenever I can. The grocers around here usually put up a sign when vegetables are locally grown. Blessings to you, Tammy…
