  • Our Projects


    Casa Girasol is home to MURU, the Sacred Vally Seed Bank. The Seed Bank is a network of farmers and gardeners across the Sacred Valley who agree to use original variety seeds (heirloom), and learn the art of seed-saving. The network then trades seeds amongst themselves and returns seeds to the central Seed Bank. All members of the Seed Bank are 100% Organic and 100% non-GMO. Casa Girasol provides seeds and seedlings at no cost to all members of the Seed Bank. Read More...
