The Seed Keeper

Stela Zămoiu, from the village Dâmbroca (Buzău county), is a peasant and a seed keeper, preserving seeds of old vegetable varieties, some nearly lost. She knows how to collect, dry, and store them over winter, how to sow them, and care for the plants that sprout from them so they can thrive, enabling her to start again,  year after year without pause. Some of these seeds were inherited from her grandmother, from whom she learned the art of gardening. Stela passes them on, treating them like treasure.
