In preperation for my local one straw revolutionary seed balling making party today I searched high and low online for quotes by the master himself. Below is one of my favorites. Please add one of yours. I'd especially love to see Sowing Seeds in the Desert Quotes - not as many of those in the virtual world and I of course have lent my copy out ;> - such a good reason to have a few copies on hand! Thanks for throwing the MF celebration Permies. Thanks Larry Korn for your huge part in spreading the MF seeds far and wide. ~Karen
