An essential rasta garden contains herbs. Parsley, thyme, mints and basils will grow just about anywhere and depending on your climate zone you can build from here. Old varieties of seeds are also very important. Terminator Technology or GURTS is breathing down our necks. Nobody knows the implications of this technology. Most people don’t even know what it is. Collect your own store of quality open pollinated seed for your rasta garden.
