SEED SAVERS JOHN TORGRIMSON SPEAKS IN MADISON OCT. 10
Join us for a presentation by John Torgrimson, executive director of Seed Savers Exchange. His talk, Preserving Genetic Diversity and Cultural History in Our Food Supply,Â starts at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10 at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St., Madison. The event is free and open to the general public.
Torgrimson will discuss how the seed exchange works and how this allows gardeners to become backyard preservationists and advocates for a diverse food supply. In addition to preserving diversity, seed savers and seed exchanges also conserve agricultural history. The stories and knowledge passed down with each seed can be as important as genetic diversity itself.
