Pride: Rainbow Radish!  🌈

As June comes to an end, we could not let this month pass us by without celebrating Pride! We celebrate and support the people within the LGBTQIA+ community living their most authentic life, and believe that it is a fundamental right that every person be treated equally!

Pride Month is a huge joyful celebration filled with people living their truth, going to parades and having a great time. However, we cannot forget that Pride was born out of an act of resistance and demand for change.

Leaders like Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera and Miss Major Griffin-Gracywere leaders in the revolution before and after the riot at Stonewall. Pride is made up of protests requiring that the LGBTQIA+ community receive equal rights. Knowing queer history is necessary to understanding the importance of Pride! Check out the video below to learn more about our history!

Here at Hamama we wanted to make sure that we contribute to the overall wellness of the LGBTQIA+ community while satisfying your taste buds! For a limited time only, we created the Rainbow Radish Seed Quilt. This brand new Rainbow Radish Mix has all the radish flavors you know and love, all in one! Red Radish, Violet Radish, Pink Radish, & Spicy Daikon Radish (oh my!) are all packed into one beautiful and tasty Seed Quilt:

Violet Radish (Organic):

The heat hits fast but is overall more mild and dissipates quickly. The flavor is refreshing and savory. The radish leaves are robust and crunchy.

Red Radish (Organic):

Reminiscent of a French Radish you'd find on a breakfast plate or in a Taqueria. The heat comes on fast with elements of pepper - enough to make your tongue tingle!

Pink Radish (Organic):

This radish has a more defined veggie flavor, similar to other greens like kale or broccoli with less pepperiness than the other radishes. This radish has a mild start with a hot finish that sneaks up on you!

Spicy Daikon Radish (Organic):

Compared to the other three, Daikon Radish has a more mild heat but with a satisfying crunch and strong, pronounced radish-y flavor. The Radish's radish.

These limited edition Seed Quilts start shipping on 7/5. Reserve yours today!

The best part about this rainbow quilt is that 1% of all sales goes to wonderful food organizations that cater to the LGBTQIA+ community! Here are some LGBTQIA+ food organizations that are making a difference!

The Okra Project:

The Okra Project is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them.”

Rock Steady Farm 

Rock Steady is a queer* owned and operated cooperative vegetable farm rooted in social justice, food access and farmer training.

*Queer for us contains and includes multitudes of identities and expressions – lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, intersex, transgender and all expressions of our gender rebel siblings, including those who identify as gender non-conforming, non-binary and two-spirit.”

Queer Food Foundation

The Queer Food Foundation’s mission is to promote, protect, fund, and create queer food spaces; to celebrate, honor, and be a resource for queer food workers and chefs.” 

Queer Soup Night

“On a mission to strengthen local queer communities across the country through sharing space, sharing food and contributing to something bigger than ourselves”

All of the organizations above are really amazing and we highly recommend that you check them out!

Larverne Cox said “When you put love out in the world it travels, and it can touch people and reach people in ways that we never even expected.” So go out today spread love and be authentically you! Happy Pride!
