I, (name), a gardener, farmer, seed saver, and eater,
wish to renew our sacred vows
to take care, love and serve
the astonishing diversity of life on this earth.
Through sickness and in health (I bet you knew that line was coming),
in times of crisis and times of joy,
to sow the seeds of food justice,
to sow the seeds of food security,
to sow the seeds of food democracy,
to sow the seeds of true food sovereignty,
through our own actions and our own eating patterns
so that we may all eat what we have truly sown.
I reaffirm our covenant with this earth,
to humbly be one more way that seeds themselves regenerate into more seeds to nourish all of us.
Love one another and go and sow in peace.
