When summer heat gave way to shortening days and cool nights, ancient peoples collected and stored seeds away from moisture and rodents. Seed pots kept the precious store safe until the earth warmed once again. Reflecting the cycle of life, the pot was broken and the seeds within were planted.
Collect and store seeds from native grasses and wildflowers or save special seeds from your own flower garden. Put one pot-or several -somewhere in your work space to remind you of precious things-families, talents, memories, ideas-that are part of your cycle of life. May each pot become a tie to ancient cultures as well as a spiritual connection to your life today.
