5. 'Seed Journey' was selected as one of six finalists in the Artes Mundi 7 exhibition at the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff (2016-17), It presented the idea of “rescue” in relation to a project to carry cereal seeds by boat from Scandanavia back to the Middle East where they were first domesticated, The boat 'Christiania' is not only a “slow” and “safe” vessel, but she also connects the ideas of 'exploration' and 'loss' to the new ideas of 'rescue' and 'findings'. The re-tracing of the routes of these seeds and their cultures re-signifies these voyages from the 21st century perspective of having lost our flotation, lost our way on the route of social evolution.. These losses are evident in the political issue of patenting genetic engineered seeds and the global issue of climate change. These are now embedded in the destruction of 4,000 years of human settlement in the warring factions in the Fertile Crescent.

12. Maize market prices are subject to seasonal cycles of production and consumption. In western Kenya, the majority of maize is harvested at the end of the long rain season (August) During this time, the market is flooded with maize and prices are at their yearly lowest. Six months later (February), the region is in the middle of the dry season and maize prices peak. For the past two years, One Acre Fund has invested in post-harvest storage products to overcome the biophysical barriers to farmers storing grain, allowing them to take advantage of these seasonal price fluctuations. With the introduction of plastic drying sheets, low-cost hermetic storage bags,and insecticidal dust, we believe that farmers now have access to the physical tools needed to effectively store grain. However, farmers still have financial burdens at harvest. These financial burdens are a barrier for farmers accessing higher grain prices through home storage In 2014 and 2015, One Acre Fund trialed a home storage loan program to test various methods to overcome these financial burdens.
