Glass Gem Corn

A project by Carl L. Barnes

It all started in Oklahoma, where farmer Carl L. Barnes — a half-Cherokee Native American died in April 16, 2016 — began growing older varieties of corn as a way to reconnect to his roots. He managed to isolate heirloom corn seeds and began sharing and exchanging the ancient corn seeds with people across the country, while continuing to select for more colorful varieties.

The seeds soon found their way to Bill McDorman, owner of Arizona-based Seed Trust and executive director of Native Seeds/SEARCH. The non-profit conservation organization now sells the seeds online.
