Seed Saving and the Inception of the Scoville Memorial Seed Library--Saturday, March 14, 4 p.m. in the Wardell Room, Scoville Memorial Library. Free Seed libraries provide a source of locally adapted seeds and food, contribute to the conservation of rare varieties through a community initiative, are a source of enjoyment and satisfaction. Davis-Hollander, ethnobotanist, writer and former Director of the Eastern Native Seed Conservancy will discuss some of the basic strategies and techniques for seed preservation so attendees can begin to learn to save their own seed. As a conservationist Davis-Hollander will emphasize the need to save unusual regional varieties. He will discuss how we can begin to create a local seed library beginning in 2015, explain the initial plans for the library, how library patrons can be involved and invites discussion to establish the community's vision for a seed library. The talk will be useful for anyone who gardens whether or not they are patrons at Scoville.
