Growers of heirloom beans of all varieties, with a special interest in beans resilient to climate change, heat and drought.
At the moment, our most exciting project is one aimed at finding the most beautiful beans, and those which maintain their colours well, in order to try and make jewellery and other decorations from them as a way to promote bean diversity. Lima beans are especially suitable for this, but so are some other common beans. This is a fun project, as it combines gardening and art. I find that promoting their beautiful side helps to then attract attention to other aspects such as their health benefits, benefits to the soil, etc.
Global Bean projects we are involved in:
A wide variety of beans that can be made available to anyone in Europe. Sharing of experiences.
Sharing of information and exchange of bean varieties.
