Seed Choices: The Relevance of Seeds and Our Local Food System
Saturday, April 15th, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

This exploratory discussion offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the idea that we all — gardeners and eaters alike — play a role in stewarding one of our most valuable natural resources: seeds. Shanyn Siegel will lead this informative conversation about seeds and the seed industry, and how they both impact one of the things most essential to our everyday lives—our food. Shanyn will explain the different types of garden seeds available and share options for selecting the best seeds for organic gardens—and a resilient regional food system. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the significance of our seed choices and some unusual heirloom seeds to try. Information about Community Seeds and the Community Seed Resource program will be shared.

Whether you’re a homesteader, a gardener, or simply a person who cares about sustainable food and agriculture systems, this class provide a wonderful opportunity to experience the source of it all: seeds. Register online at www.somerslibrary.org or call us at 914-232-5717.

Our programs are funded by the Friends of the Somers Library through your donations.
Thanks for your support!
