Our Vision is to raise spiritual consciousness n the inter-connectiveness between humanity and Mother Earth.
We are, as all of humanity is, at a crossroads. We are facing the loss of bio-diversity at an unprecedented rate. Human migration is at an all-time high – 1 in 100 people are displaced from their homes for a variety of reasons including climate change.
Heirloom seeds are our past and our future, taking many generations to diversify and cultivate. Seed banks, like the one at The Path, are crucial for our very survival. They support our survival by: Preserving Crop Diversity; Protecting Us from Climate Change; Protecting Us from Natural Disasters; Mitigating Disease in Crops; Providing Seed Material for Research
The mission of the Path is to conserve and distribute seeds for future generations. We meet our mission through seed conservation, education, and collaboration with other organizations.
Each time Grandmother Flordemayo travels it is on behalf of her non-profit The Path Inc. Grandmother Flordemayo's mission is to bring awareness about the preservation of heirlooms seeds for future generations.
However with the Corona Virus - Covid 19 travels have stopped and we have closed The Path to events and limited visitors and income has substantially decreased.
Are you fortunate enough to have escaped the worst financial impacts of the pandemic? If so, then you are one of those we are appealing to! So we ask you to… consider making a donation today!

Your donations are critical to ensure the maintenance of the sacred sites on the 40-Acres property, located in Estancia, New Mexico.
What the funds are for: Today, we are going Green! Our intention is to bring renewable and sustainable technologies to The Path, such as solar and/or wind power, rain catchment system, and gray water system.
Grandmother Flordemayo is the founder of The Path. The Path is located on 40-acres in Estancia, New Mexico, just east of Albuquerque. Estancia is translated as the “place of rest.” On the 40-Acres are five sacred temples for humanity: The Seed Temple , The Temple of the Golden Child , The Water Temple , The Fire Temple , Wind Temple , and the Earth Temple .The Seed Temple is the realization of Grandmother Flordemayo's original vision of a place where the sacred heritage seeds would be protected for future generations. It has existed since 2012 and has served as a source of seed for the local area, such as the Estancia Seed Library, as well as for many individuals in New Mexico and elsewhere. The many gatherings on the site have involved educational classes, sharing of seeds, and celebration of the spirituality carried in the seeds.
Now more than ever it is critical that we protect and increase our heritage seeds for the future and for our communities. Much of the diversity of seeds is being lost as fewer people are planting the original seeds, as modern agriculture has turned to genetically modified and patented seeds to produce our crops. The seeds in our collection have come from numerous donations of samples of traditional varieties of corn, beans, squash, grains, vegetables, and herbs. The Seed Temple is designed as a controlled environment that protects the viability of the seeds stored. From the Seed Temple, many kinds of seeds from our collection have been sent to volunteers who have helped grow and increase them, to keep them strong, and to provide a stock source to distribute to others. Working to preserve these seeds gives us a sense of purpose and unity and fosters the relationships in the community, which are our true wealth.
The Seed Temple networks with other organizations such as the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance and with seed preservation groups and individuals in the Southwest and beyond. It holds a special place in the future of the worldwide movement to preserve our sacred seeds.I truly can’t thank everyone enough who donated to our previous campaign. The funds are so important to maintaining the Path and Grandmother Flordemayo’s work for humanity.
