My first Qunioa seeds are growing!

They scared me, they were planted a month ago and then nothing… but sure enough, tiny green life!

—This is a little project I’m working on with my friend Zoë, I gave about a teaspoon of Quinoa seeds to 8 families in my village and asked them to try growing them. The real goal is that people would be willing to eat this as a part of their regular diet, because its chocked full of protein and nutrients that aren’t a part of their regular diets. I’ll let you know how it turns out in about 5 months.
