Event Details

Seed Keeping: Storytelling, Liberation, and How to Save Seeds


Which seeds tell the stories of your ancestors?
Which foods tell the story of your community’s resilience, struggle, and joy?
For seed saver Owen Taylor, the Lumper Potato, is one such seed. Within this spud is the story of The Great Famine, England colonizing Ireland, modern-day globalization and food apartheid.
This three hour in-depth workshop will explore the why and how of seed saving and the stories that tie us to our ancestors, and inform us in our lives today. This workshop will include hands on cleaning of both wet and dry seeds using common kitchen items, and will explore concepts for seed saving such as flower anatomy, isolation distance and taxonomy. Throughout the class Taylor will be asking participants to reach into history and honor the seeds with the telling of their stories.
Owen Taylor

Owen Taylor is a seed keeper, educator and musician and is the founder of SeedKeeping(https://seedkeeping.tumblr.com/), a food sovereignty-based collaboration between rural and urban farmers. SeedKeeping works with community-rooted farmers focused on preserving and proliferating culturally important heirloom seeds along with their stories, rituals, and the centuries of traditions contained within them. Taylor has been a lifelong seed saver but dove deeper and developed his craft as the manager for the Roughwood Seed Collection where he worked closely with food historian William Woys Weaver to preserve thousands of varieties of rare heirloom plants.
