Inspired by Joe & Kim Morin’s quinoa farm near Lake George, people from Pikes Peak Community Foundation, University of Colorado Colorado Springs and The Harvest Center formed a project group to grow ancient grains in our high altitude environment.
We held our first planning session May 4, 2012 at Aspen Valley Ranch. The group included Ron Beyers, Ron Capen, Nanna Myer, Victoria Solano, and Lee Willoughby. Joe Morin was unable to attend, but sent a sampling of quinoa and Andean Lupin seeds. Several other people who will add valuable expertise and support are cited in the accompanying AncientGrainsIntro.
