Pictured here is a blooming Hibiscus on @namu_farm • This may not be the type of Hibiscus you have seen before.  It’s Hibiscus sabdariffa also known as Roselle, and it’s the deep ruby calyx that is used for the beverages we are familiar with and that we dry to use in our skincare for its firming and brightening properties. .
.
Thank you @namu_farm for introducing me to this fresh plant a few seasons back, it’s become my favorite plant to work with.  And getting to harvest some with you was a true gift because your plants are the best! 📷: @namu_farm .

This is Molokhia. It’s in the okra family. I love the seeds and seed pods of this plant.  Hopefully some will reseed so I can cook with the leaves too. Kristyn @namu_farm grew this plant and cultivated land at the #sunolagpark for many years! I will be expanding my farm and taking over Krystin’s acreage this year. I’m sad to see Kristyn leave but excited for her new adventures farming in Winters. #blumafarm #flowerfarmer #molokhia #namufarm

Introducing Better Chamoe. Kristyn Leach of Namu Farm (@namu_farm) in Sunol, California grew this flavorful and culturally important variety for the Truelove Seeds catalog. Order her seeds now at www.trueloveseeds.com 
Read the seed story, featuring a time and flavor before Japanese hybridization and hometown resistance to US militarism, in Kristyn's words: 
This landrace Korean melon variety has all the classic attributes that makes chamoe beloved by Koreans: crisp flesh with much of the sweetness coming from the seeds and pulp, and a flavor combo of cucumber, honeydew, and apple. Less sweet than modern hybrids, the flavor is quite interesting, refreshing, and somewhat floral. 
Chamoe is a symbol of summer in Korea. They are distinctly part of Korean culture on the peninsula and in the diaspora. This variety pre-dates Japanese intervention into chamoe breeding, where they crossed native Korean melons with Japanese cultivars. Most modern commercial strains are a product of this hybridization. This variety has been protected by small growers in Korea, and as a result, it's production habit reflects desirable traits for subsistence farmers: vigor without the need for commercial fertilizer, long harvest window reducing the need for multiple successions, and harvest volume appropriate for small scale. 
It's particularly significant to honor the chamoe right now, as melon farmers in Sosongri are on the front lines combating the US THAAD installation in their region. Gyeonsangbuk-do is the center of chamoe production and also happens to be the province where I was born.

Over the summer I visited Kristyn's farm and she generously spent the entire afternoon with us, sharing her stories and feeding us chamoe and poha berries. Tomorrow, this amazing human being, farmer and food justice advocate is going to grace our stage to talk about the importance of cultivating seeds to preserve culture and its role in regenerative agriculture. Kristyn Leach of @namu_farm will be in conversation with @shak_simley and the dynamic duo of @nokni_oakland (Chefs Steve Joo and Julya Shin) who also curated our dinner menu. Special performances by @doheemago and @xtinehlee1. Ticket link in bio! •

Well this was my fav afternoon all month. How delightful & intelligent heritage seeds (& lovely people) are to this world. It's worth everything to push back against monocrop, industrialized systems, because these miss the meaning, magic & climate resiliency possible in keeping traditions alive. Thank you small POC growers, backyard fam gardeners, fierce seed keepers, for ensuring these are protected for future generations. As a Pinay I imagine a timeline of how corn developed in the Americas across thousands of years, then crossed the Pacific from Mexico 300 years ago to become part of the archipelago diet, & now living here in CA with corn ...

Glass gem corn harvest!!! The #GlassGemBabes managed a couple of hours @namu_farm (mostly eating) and then harvesting the first #glassgemcorn of the season.

SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PLANTS!!! 🌱✨❤️Inspired by frutas cristalizadas, I soaked Kristyn's chamoe, bittermelon, tomatillos, and tomatoes in cal and passed them on to Aileen who simmered them for three nights in sugar water. Now they sunbathe and, if all goes well they are good at room temp for over six months. The Philippines and Mexico share this lime/cal curing process - if anyone know the route, and more about alkaline ingredients in foods of the global south, holla. These brujas want to know. #research #brujatestkitchen #sisterhoodofthetravellingplants #sitastestkitchen #frutascristalizadas #namufarm @aileensuzara @namu_farm experiments inspired by @fanygerson 's #mysweetmexico and @amycbesa 's insta feed

Farmer Kristyn provided glass gem corn for our April 1st meal and also shared it with the @samasamacooperative crew. She told them about how trading seeds meant healthier plants and within minutes the kids were swapping seeds with each other. We think Carl Barnes, who was called to develop this corn, would have been thrilled at the sight. We certainly were. #bbcornbbkids #sinmaiznohaypais #glassgemcorn #carlbarnes #namufarm #peopleskitchencollective #samasamacollective #airandliberation

A wonderful day spent with our "hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature" amongst amazing Diasporeans at @namu_farm -- Kristyn was generous in sharing her knowledge, and I couldn't be more grateful for the organizing that went behind this #좋은날 #행복 #농업 #집단기억 #namufarm

Kristyn from @namu_farm changed the way I think about flavor - she also inspired two student projects from my course #atasteofresistance - Amos M. Built a worm composting bin based on a prototype of plastic kimchi tubs and @havanow contributed three giant ceramic vessels to catch rainwater. With Kristyn around, farming is contagious. Thank you for all that you do!!! #namufarm #naturalfarming

Our menu for Saturday's meal was printed by @sitabhaumik with a dusting of turmeric over the words of @namu_farm - "They contain the memory of a long trip over the ocean, hot Sunol sun, and California soil." As Carl Barnes would say, the seed remembers. #decolonize #peopleskitchencollective #alenamuseum #namufarm #farmkitchentablestreet 📸by the incomparable @sanajaverikadri

As we know all too well, "where are you from" is a complicated question. After going loopy researching the disputed origins and migration of Korean chilies for our April 1st meal, we asked farmer/collaborator @namu_farm where Korean chilies are from. She reminded us that these stories are complicated because we have co-evolved with plants.
.
Which brings us back to these chilies, last season's "lady hermit" - a name inspired by the seed scholar who has worked to preserve this plant. This heirloom is from Sunchang and grown locally at Namu Farm with Oakland based @kitazawa_seed - all chilies are believed to be indigenous to the Americas. 📸by @namu_farm

This "tea" of willow branches provides nutrients to these little baby onions before they're planted and become big ol onions at @namu_farm
.
Onions have been cultivated for over 5,000 years and are believed to have originated from either Central Asia, or what is now Iran and west Pakistan.

We recently heard from an elder whose childhood asthma was treated with a home remedy of onion juice in Pakistan. Do you have any onion remedies? We'd love to know. #namufarm #peopleskitchencollective #decolonize #research #kitchenremedies

We asked @namu_farm what we would be on our plates this spring if we were only eating off the farm. The answer? Dried beans, dried corn, and squash stored from last season. After years of drought, the abundance of rain means soggy soil, dirt that turns to clay, and, in some cases, devastating flooding. Farmers will be planting late this year. We're so thankful for all of the hands that make our food possible. For all of their work and their wisdom. #decolonize #namufarm #peopleskitchencollective #corn #glassgemcorn #carlbarnes #nativeseeds

This is the incredible glass gem corn that Kristyn grows at @namu_farm - she told us the story of Carl White Eagle Barnes - a Cherokee Scottish-Irish highway patrol officer whose dreams told him to follow the corn. He devoted the rest of his life to being a "Seed Rememberer" who recovered and reunited  heritage corn with indigenous peoples. His seeds mapped out the Trail of Tears. "The corn is our blood, it's our genealogy." #corn #maize #glassgemcorn #carlbarnes #decolonize #foodjustice #namufarm #peopleskitchencollective #rainbowcorn #ancestralfood #seedrememberer #followthecorn

We spent our #internationalwomensday with one of our farm loves - Kristyn of @namu_farm  grows heirloom Korean plants without fossil fuel. She is a testament to the craft, science, heart, and heritage of farming. #namufarm #peopleskitchencollective #decolonize #foodjustice

A colorful lunch with purple radishes from @namu_farm! These radishes are super mild and sweet. Toss them into a salad with Cara Cara oranges, arugula, lettuce, parsley, sesame seeds and top with a balsamic, olive oil, mustard and ginger dressing...

A day at the wall with @cececarpio and an afternoon at @namu_farm - to plant seeds for chuseok, a celebration of harvest and ancestors, aka Korean Thanksgiving. Kristyn told us to stomp and dance like we meant it to help the seeds grow. It was the most beautiful of days and left me feeling like my life is really incredible. @shootingstarbotanicals @justuskitchen @saqibkeval @sanajaverikadri @mia_nakano_oakland @chungtech #peopleskitchencollective #foodjustice #namufarm #djumibear

I feel like a kid who just found out hot cheetos  grow on trees. Red shiso furikake on rice was my favorite growing up - but I never thought about how it was made. @namufarms recently gifted me a giant bag of red shiso for my ume project and I started to wonder... You salt the shiso, massage a deep purple liquid from it, and pickle it in vinegar and salt. Then, you sun dry the shiso and crumble it. It's only been a day and the color of the vinegar is an unreal magenta. One question for the picklers out there, how long do I leave it in the brine before drying it? #namufarm #foodofmypeople #sitaskitchen #🌈themoreyouknow🌈
