SEEDING THE FUTURE

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds which have been worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. On Thursday, April 19, the Shelter Island Library screens a film by Taggart Siegel and John Betz titled “Seed: The Untold Story.” The documentary follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy.

The screening begins at 7 p.m. and is being held in conjunction with the 6:30 p.m. opening of the Shelter Island Seed Library for the season. This is the third year that the Seed Library (a collaboration with Sylvester Manor Educational Farm) will be open. Come check out the collection and “borrow” seeds — free!   (more…)
