Harvesting Heritage Corn

Around this time of year at Earthaven, you might see several varieties of heritage corn being dried, including Oaxacan Green, Carl’s Glass Gem, and Bloody Butcher. These are used, respectively, for tortillas and hominy, popcorn, and cornmeal. Twelve-year-old resident, Stone, grew the Bloody Butcher corn pictured; his fifteen-year-old sister, Gaia, arranged and took the photographs.
