I was talking with one of my Colombian sponsors about preserving native Colombian strains and man she was all for it. It seems she has land in Santander and would let me grow out some of the seed I've collected and more that I've got recently from the university. Of course I don't know if I can do the commercial finca and a preservation finca but I want to try. I'm not talking about some fancy breeding operation, I just want make pure seed for future projects.

We are still awaiting approval for licensing but confidence is high and slowly we are getting organized. I have no interest in being a boss but I have to assert myself in order to get things for the plants. Looking forward to a few more meetings but I hope to be on site within the next month. And I should have some more pictures from our finca in Zipacon this week. In the mean time I have received some seeded samples to test out (smoke) and see if there's anything I like there. Hard and slow
