A living laboratory for a sustainable human future.

NikiAnne the Columbine Farmer at Earthaven Ecovillage

(Transcript) NikiAnne:

So really what I want to be in life is a Columbine farmer. I don’t know if that exists.

This is just the beginning of the Columbine coming back after winter. The ones in this yard- the flowers are deep, deep, purple and then there’s another one that’s like red peach and orange yellow together. They’re just gorgeous.

They’re not flowers that you would pick and put in a vase because they kind of like face down.  But wow are they amazing!

Last fall when they had gone to seed I harvested some seed and I threw a lot of seed in other places I wanted the columbine to populate. We’ll see if it’s stratified and did well. I’m also going to seed some in trays this year with my friend, Eli, and see if we can populate the valley here with more beauty with these flowers.

Let’s do Columbine!
