*Program will be held in the Community Room*
Ken Greene started the Seed Library in 2004 while working as a Librarian at the Gardiner Public Library in Gardiner, New York.  Having developed a strong interest in preserving heirloom seed varieties, he decided to add them to the library catalog so that patrons could "check them out," grow them in their home gardens, and then "return" saved seed at the end of the season.  The program was a small but successful endeavor--one of the first of its kind in the country.  After four years of running the program at the library, Ken and his partner Doug decided to turn the library into a mission-driven, homestead-based small business--which it still is today.  Ken will give a talk about seeds and what it means to garden with seeds that are meant to be grown in our region.  Hudson Valley Seed Library seeds will be available for purchase!
