In school, I heard a story of a farmer who was known for producing best crops and sharing his best seeds with other farmers in the vicinity.

When asked why, he said, “It is a selfish act. Winds collect pollens and carry it to adjacent fields.  If my neighbors use the best crop, the quality of my crop would also go up.”

What seeds are you sharing with others?
