Chia ~ Growing, Harvesting and Saving Chia Seed.
An experiment in expanding store bought Chia proves the value of saving seed you buy to expand exponentially your Chia Seed Sovereignty.
A short video showing the success we had with our small Chia crop, I hope it inspires you to sow more seed, even if it’s just for the Bee’s and the local Ecology.
Seed Sovereignty is pivotal to our Freedoms and Cultural traditions, our health and Well-Being. Being dependent on Commercial/Corporate supermarkets for food is extremely unhealthy, costly and soon we may not have the option.

If you’ve not yet realised the Super Power of Chia, then take a look at these links:
Growing the Chia was really easy, I just threw the seed on prepared composted ground, lightly mulched, watered daily and up it came. As it grows feed with some natural organic fertilizer, keep well watered and harvest when the flowers dry.. When you harvest the seed, much of it falls back to the ground so I cover the seed with the leftovers from the harvest stage, the stalks and flowers, and then up she comes again. This next crop I use as a green manure crop only and put all that energy back into the Earth before flowers set in and the process is repeated.
