Talk on Seed Saving as an Activist Practice


Sustainable Tacoma-Pierce presents on ongoing series of open-to-the-public presentations in conjunction with their Tacoma Permaculture Design Course. For this talk, Marisha Auerbach from Wild Thyme Farm and Herbín Wisdom will talk on "Seed Saving as an Activist Practice." Seed-saving is a great localizing buffer against the corporatization of our food supply, because it encourages diversity and increases the resilience in our gardens to pests and diseases. As corporations attempt to take control of our genetic diversity, seed-saving becomes an important political act. Come join us to learn how you can take responsibility for your own food supply by saving your seeds from your own garden. Cost is a sliding scale $10 - $5, although students in the Course pay no extra fee.

Cost / Admission
