“We feel that we need to have a good heart, a good mind, and a good spirit when we’re farming. We need a good heart to be able to take care of all of the precious seeds that we have in our bundles. We need to have a good mind to be able to take care of the land that we are on. And we need to have a good spirit to continue the work that we’re doing.”
