Rick Lass

Hi all,

my name is Rick Lass and I live in southwestern New Mexico, in the Mimbres River valley. We have a smallish farm, about an acre, and I have generally just been growing annual vegetables. I also have a few fruit trees and berry patches.

I am very interested in learning about grains, and reading all of your introductions has been inspiring.

In addition to growing food, I am involved with the local seed library and the native plant society. There are several native grains/grasses that I am considering growing here next season, including Apache red Grass and Sacaton.

I participated in the Seed Saving Teacher Training this spring and am looking forward to learning more about grains.
