I wanted to share with you a photo from the 2013 Amaranth Institute conference held in Chicago, Illinois. We had a strong turnout with more than 25 amaranth enthusiasts from more than seven US states, two African countries, Russia, and India. In a couple of weeks, I will post PDF files of the presentations. We encourage you to continue to follow the work of the Institute at www.amaranthinstitute.org.
Amaranth: Reviving An Ancient Crop
The Amaranth Institute publishes the "Legacy" newsletter to provide updated information about amaranth.
Please browse previous newsletters and check back soon for our latest publication.
The Legacy archive consists of scanned print newsletters presented in pdf form.
Some of the resulting files are quite large.
The following links provide information on organizations whose work corresponds to the goals of the Amaranth Institute:
Amaranth is a broadleaf plant that could be mistaken for soybeans early in the growing season by someone driving past a field. Late in the season, however, there is no mistaking this striking, tall crop which develops brilliantly colored grain heads producing thousands of tiny seeds. Amaranth was a major food of the Aztecs and earlier American cultures, having been domesticated thousands of years ago.
