Brown Bag Lunch Presentation: From Seed to Harvest, From Harvest to Seed
 
Professor Mark Silber, a farmer, teacher, anthropologist, photographer and a former public official, will be delivering a one-hour presentation about choosing plants for the garden and harvesting and preserving seeds. Silber will address his concerns regarding the shift in seed availability from open pollinated, to hybrid and genetically modified seeds.
 
Professor Silber will also talk about how he selects and saves seeds. He’ll argue that gardening and raising your own crops are important in order to assure diversity of seed varieties.
