    This is a great idea. I’m glad he was able raise the money nessasary to achieve the their goal of incorporating more fresh authentic southwestern Herbs and Veggies. I personally love the Flor de Calabaza(AKA Squash Blossom) which is delicious when added into a quesadilla with some home made roasted Tomatillo salsa.
    Mmm
    I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
    Aside from the fact that the newly incorperated herbs and veggies are more traditionally grown to cater to a south western diet. It’s my belief that we should always be willing to try different herbs an veggies regardless of where they originate. Especially if we have the oppertunity to grow them our selves or their being locally and organically grown.

    I’m excited to learn about their efforts to avoid the harmful effects of shipping, cooling and preserving. It’s also great what one can now accomplish with a little crowd sourced funding.
    The world continues to change and it seems like this is just a sneak peak into the possibilities that lie ahead.

    Thanks again inhabitat
