Event Details

Garden History Lecture Series
Seed Saving Primer, and Genetic Engineering and Food Security
People have saved and propagated seed from plants in their gardens and from wild plants for over ten thousand years. Since the beginning of agriculture people traded or bartered seed. Selling seed commercially began at the beginning of the 19th Century and by the 1850s many commercial horticulture operations sold seeds. Today, much of the world still saves seed as a necessity. Especially in developing countries, saving seed is an essential part of farming. Diana will offer practical seed saving tips for the home gardener, including information on which plants from which seed may be saved, as well as harvesting and storage advice. Learn how the progressive technology of GMO threatens the ages-old practice of saving seed, how to protect yourself from the hidden health dangers of genetically modified food and how to protect your right to grow life-giving, nutritious food in your own garden. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, 11 Church Street, Searsport. Tickets in advance $8 members, $10 non-members, or at the door $12 members, $15 non-members. Call 207-548-2529 for more information.

Penobscot Marine Museum

Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!

 

Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
