Description

Theodore Payne Foundation Presents: Seed Banking - Ancient Practices, Modern Applications Primary tabs

Join us for a lecture/presentation on seed banking.
Theodore Payne Foundation horticulturists and botanists have been collecting and saving native seed in the Los Angeles region since the turn of the 20th century. Follow the story from historic seed, tool and catalog displays up through modern day seed banking implements and methods, including the “seed museum” that reveals the intricate beauty and masterful design of seeds and their fruiting structures.
In January, Theodore Payne Foundation will display portions of their seed collection in the lobby of the Edendale Branch.
This program is funded by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles and is part of the 21 Collections exhibition.
