Seed Saving: Why Me? – A Zoom Talk with Lisa Millette
The vegetables, herbs, and flowers grown in the U.S. today came from all around the world, yet we are slowly losing the diversity of our seed stock. In this talk, we will cover a brief history of how seed varieties came to our country and its importance and relevance today—especially in the face of climate change. We will end discussing some easy varieties and techniques to begin saving seeds on your own.
Lisa Millette has over 11 years of experience growing annual vegetables, herbs, and flowers, including 3 years leading the seed saving operations at the Biodynamic seed initiative: Turtle Tree Seed. She currently resides in South Thomaston and works as a Community Development Officer at the Island Institute. When not dreaming of her garden, Lisa enjoys cross-country skiing, learning about and practicing yoga, and curling up with her cat, a good book, and a cup of tea.
