We met Dorothy when she was a hight school student in Honiara, The Solomon Islands. She became an intern at the Kastom Garden Association. Then we visited her in her island village where she has made two collections of local bananas: one in her school and one in her highland village one day walk from the coast via a small forest track. In the picture in Geneflow photo she was in her bush kitchen.
