The key to sustaining agricultural biodiversity may be as close as the nearest backyard garden—even your own.
It’s easy to begin seed saving, explains Bill McDorman, but not all common garden plants readily lend themselves to the practice.
Seed saving begins in individual backyards, but the idea is tailor-made for scaling up to the community level, McDorman notes, and that’s just what is starting to happen.
Bill McDorman is the founder and president of the Seeds Trust mail order business, offering "vegetable, herb, wildflower and wild grass seed for a sustainable future." He will be speaking at at the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center annex building in Sebastopol, 425 Morris Street, on Sunday afternoon June 6th from 3-5 pm.
