"A seed sown in the soil makes us one with the Earth. It makes us realize that we are the Earth. " Vandana Shiva
Get back to Appalachia's history and culture of saving seed; a self-sustaining system in which we all have the capability to participate and be a part of. Intimidated by the idea of saving seed from plants you have grown? Are you wondering where to begin? Do you want to help your community maintain the right to preserve and share seed to create a more just and local food system? Join Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture, the Watauga and Ashe Public Libraries, and North Carolina Agriculture Extension Agents for the series of free Seed Saving Workshops! All are welcome, no seed saving experience necessary.
