Cherokee Nation Seed Bank online distribution begins Feb. 1

“The native plants are just as much, or even a little bit more so, a part of Cherokee culture than are the crops. The native plants are harder to produce as we have to try and replicate an environmental setting completely different than our Seed Bank location. Many important cultural Cherokee plants grow in a cool, wetland understory environment. We are located in the middle of a sunbaked field of shallow soil…so it’s pretty tough,”

Seeds are only available to CN, United Keetoowah Band and EBCI citizens.
