Hi Judy, thanks for sharing such a positive bit of news!

Bulbs alone may not save the world, but recovering traditional crops and
remembering how to tend the soil rather than strip-mining it....just might.
If we take inspiration from this and look locally for what we can do as
well as support efforts such as this one in Afghanistan there's more than
"just" hope. We can act knowing the impact is additive.

Sitting here on the coast of Spain I wouldn't mind having a bit of your
rainfall, and a few good thunderstorms. Could you ask the thunder gods to
send some of that in this direction?

Thanks :)
