Please join us for a community conversation on seed saving after this year's fair, starting 5:30pm in Room 160 of Mann Library. Snacks and beverages will be provided, including local popcorn. This event is free and open to the public.
A panel of local practioners will first briefly talk about their work, following up on some of the ideas presented in this recent NOFA article (pg. B-29) about seed saving in Tompkins County. Monika Roth from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County will moderate. Panelists include:
-Elizabeth Dyck, Organic Growers' Research and Information Sharing Network (OGRIN)
-Thor Oecshner, Organic Grain Farmer/Entrepreneur (Farmer Ground Flour)
We'll then open things up for discussion on some of the barriers and opportunities related to seed saving on a community or regional scale, and how this might help support community health and resilience.
