As awareness about the human impact on the environment continues to grow, many have highlighted the long-practiced tradition of seed saving. Seed saving provides both individuals and communities with a method of continuing cultural traditions, preparing for climate-related stressors, and cultivating biodiversity.
In this workshop four panelists will discuss their experiences with seed saving and share their expertise on its importance and impacts on culture and the environment both globally and locally. Topics that will be discussed include creating a heirloom seed bank in Fondwa, sharing seeds as a way to save culture and biodiversity, and community food systems.
