Seed Libraries by Cindy Conner. In the past few years, gardeners have realized that action needs to be taken to preserve open pollinated and heirloom seeds, and to maintain a healthy genetic diversity in our seeds. A growing movement is striving to preserve and expand our stock of heritage and heirloom varieties through seed saving and sharing opportunities. This book shows how seed libraries work, and gives a compelling account for the growth of interest in establishing new ones.
Whoever controls the seeds controls the food supply. By empowering communities to preserve and protect the genetic diversity of their harvest, Seed Libraries is the first step towards reclaiming our self-reliance while enhancing food security and ensuring that the future of food is healthy, vibrant, tasty, and nutritious.
