The Lost Art of Seed Saving

Date/Time

Feb 20, 2014
07:00 PM until 08:00 PM

Description

 Join Tim Mountz, Chief Tomato Grower at Happy Cat Farm in southeast Pa., for the third talk in the popular Winter Lecture Series on Thursday nights. Tim, an engaging storyteller and passionate gardener, tells how a collection of beans from his grandfather’s farm turned into a business, and engages audiences with his adventure into learning the lost arts of seed saving that enable the Happy Cat mission: to reconnect people with the greater sustainable working landscape, create a sense of place, and bring a human scale back to people’s foodshed. Many people have said, “Food is Culture,” but Tim Mountz believes that food gave rise to culture, and if so, seeds must be our first religion, and that people need a little bit of that old time religion. Tim grew up in the garden, and from a young age he wanted to be like Elliot Coleman, a renowned farmer, author, educator, seed crafter, and advocate for organic farming.
