Welcome to new visitors!
As always, I follow the story that wants to be told with this project, and in 2018, it looks like some exciting chapters will be added.
- The site will be redone and the content reorganized.
- I have a couple art shows booked for my food sovereignty propaganda posters, and I'm applying for a few more.
- Hopefully, I will be launching my first Ark of Taste Seed Library at Stockton University.
- The project that I'm leading that uses the economic power of community to exercise food sovereignty rights, the August Flower Food Co-op in Woodbury, NJ, is moving forward. More to come as this progresses/
Please Like my Facebook page, and follow me on Twitter at @libraryseedbank since there will be quicker updates there. I plan on rolling my older blog, Vanishing Feast, An Heirloom Solution, into this one.
Thanks again for your interest and support.
Founder, Library Seed Bank
To establish seed banks at public libraries and community groups for free and open access to open pollinated plant seeds.
How a Library Seed Bank (LSB) Works
A library member, or a community group member checks out a package of seeds just like they would check out a book. They grow the plants, collect the seeds, and return a package of the collected seeds to the library. That simple.
First Seed Bank for LSB
The first seed bank established by LSB is at the McGowan Memorial Library in Pitman, New Jersey. The Board of Directors approved it in September 2013, and the Seed Library went live on February 22, 2014. A second seed library opened in April 2014 at the Woodbury Public Library, Woodbury, New Jersey.
Please take a look at the Recent Post section on the right updating the work that LSB is doing.
