The Power of Seed: Rebuilding Our Seed Heritage
February 21, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come learn about the history, significance and techniques of seed saving; expect to come away inspired and empowered on how you can start saving seeds and be a part of rebuilding our seed heritage. Using simple tools, participants will have an opportunity to clean wet- and dry-seeded crops as well as bring home some seed. Though much has been lost, each seed is evidence of the extraordinary hope that exists in every crack in the sidewalk! The significance of seed cannot be overestimated: from how we approach global biodiversity to how we choose our afternoon snack, every decision we make impacts what and how seeds are planted around the world. In a time when a few corporations control the vast majority of the seeds planted, reclaiming regional seed networks is the foundation of the resilient community, ecology and economy we all strive for.
