Seed Underground Book Discussion

Have you heard? We’re meeting up (via Zoom) this month for a group book discussion!

The Seed Underground, by Janisse Ray

Join Linda Hamilton, Charlotte Seed Library Co-Coordinator, for a 2-part discussion about this essential book.  Acclaimed author Janisse Ray draws us into the issues and the urgency of protecting food sovereignty through seeds.  She starts with startling facts, like that 94 percent of the thousands of seed varieties available at the turn of the 20th century have been lost forever.  And this could not be happening at a worse time, when to adapt to climate change we will need all the biological diversity we can find.  She weaves together inspiring stories of ordinary gardeners who are doing the essential work of saving time-honored, open-pollinated varieties for themselves and to share with others, thus keeping them alive.  An important read for everyone who gardens, and in fact for everyone who eats!

We’ll meet on January 22nd & January 29th, at 11:00 am. Registration required here.

We hope you will join us!
