The Project Baseline collection comprises millions of seeds collected from dozens of sites across the continental United States of America. We acknowledge that these collections were made on the unceded lands of indigenous peoples and express our gratitude for their historical and ongoing contributions to botanical knowledge and environmental stewardship. We encourage those engaging with Project Baseline to explore the indigenous territories, languages, and cultures of the sites from which we collected their seed and to acknowledge that these are still indigenous lands. We ask all involved with Project Baseline to honor the longstanding history that precedes our continued and collective colonization of these spaces.
