When you visit the website – Seeds For Food, I guarantee you will be amazed at what is possible!

You will learn about refugees from Western Sahara who have been living in camps for over 30 years, deep in the heart of the Sahara Desert. You will see photos of this desolate landscape that has gradually been transformed – one home garden at-a-time!

Dimidia is proud to have become a member of a growing team that is committed to the vision of the program founder, Dr. Willem Van Cotthem – Feeding the World’s Poorest. His blog on Desertification is a permanent link from this blog.

He has accomplished this task over the past 4 years by simply collecting seeds from many dining tables. Those collected seeds – normally discarded from our tables, have been collected, cleaned and sent to him for their ultimate journey to the Sahara Desert.

His photos tell a most unbelieveable story. We hope you will be inspired to participate in this effort. Details will be provided on numerous partner sites as this effort expands.

Please follow this progress from the following links:

Other links will be provided to introduce you to our growing team. The Sahara is just the program’s initial destination.
