Seed Matters, Do You Know Where Your Seed Comes From?

Join Kim Delaney for a deep dive into the world of seed. We’ll start with a look at the history and possible future of seed. We’ll learn basic seed saving techniques and how they can be practiced at various scales from home gardening on a balcony to full scale commercial production. Come hear about the growing global seed movement from seed libraries to community seed banks and learn how you can participate.

Kim Delaney is a seed farmer living and working in Palmerston Ontario. She is the founder of Hawthorn Farm Organic Seeds and a regular speaker on many seed related topics. Kim became a bonafide seedhead when she learned to identify, harvest, clean and test the seeds of Ontario’s native Tallgrass Prairie ecosystem. She now focuses on vegetable, flower and herb seed and dabbles in on-farm plant breeding through her involvement with SeedWorks a small, Ontario based plant breeding club. Kim lives with her partner Brian and assorted animals on a 100 acre organic farm. She is currently a board member of SeedChange.
