Main St., Canaan, CT 06018. Phone: 860-435-2838.

Seeds will soon be on the minds of many people in a few weeks. Next week Plantin' Seeds in Canaan will be collaborating with the Scoville Memorial Library on a program about seeds. There has been a resurgence in both starting plants from scratch and preserving seeds of vegetables, other crops, and native plants. Seed diversity is fundamental to preserving biological diversity in gardens and native habitats. Lawrence Davis-Hollander and Robin Zitter will present Seeds of Longevity: Preserving Plants for Our Future. Davis-Hollander is an ethnobotanist, former director and founder of the Eastern Seed Conservancy while Zitter is a landscape gardener, horticulturist and specialist in native plants. As part of the initial effort to establish seed libraries and a living seed bank in northwest Connecticut, the presenters will introduce the rationale and need for locally based seed saving. There will be a short film followed by presentation and discussion. Seeds will be available to committed participants. Program will meet at Plantin' Seeds on Main Street in Canaan on Thursday, February 25 at 7p.m. It will be followed in March by a seed planting workshop. Reservations are required; RSVP to scovilleadultprograms@gmail.com.
