Description

If every seed has a story, then every garden is a work of art bringing seed stories to life. This presentation highlights a timeline of seed heritage up to the modern seed industry through elegant, humorous, and telling images from the Hudson Valley Seed Company’s collection of antique seed catalogs and contemporary seed packaging art. Ken Greene is founder of the first seed library in the country, a project he germinated in Gardiner, NY. Today, Ken helms the Hudson Valley Seed Co., a national seed company and regional seed farm devoted to ethically producing seed for home gardeners and farmers and to celebrating seeds through creating unique botanical art packaging. The Hudson Valley Seed Company was awarded a Horticulture Commendation by The Garden Club of America at their Zone III meeting in 2018. RSVP by April 10 at: (845) 688-6042.
