What places have these seeds passed through? Whose hands cultivated them? What brought them to Bartram’s Garden and where will they travel next? To hold these seeds, we hold stories—told and untold alike.
As seed keepers at Bartram’s Garden, we solemnly hold the sacredness of the sovereignty of the original stewards of the plants, and the sacredness of the plant’s journeys through time and place to new and different hands.
