Farmer Podcast Club – Hudson Valley Seed co on Cultivating Places

While you’re waiting for new Seed Grower’s episodes, I thought I would share some seed episodes from other podcasts.

First up is the June 30 episode from Cultivating Place: The Generosity & Mutual Care Of Seeds: Ken Greene Of Hudson Valley Seed Company.

I loved this conversation about K’s journey to find out where seed comes from and how that blossomed into the Hudson Valley Seed Company and other projects.

Here’s the episode description:

“K joins Cultivating Place this week to delve into the long view and deep relationships born of the generosity of seed – and seed people – in our garden lives.

Ken Greene – who goes by K – is a seed person. He is the co-founder of the Hudson Valley Seed Library, which in 2004 became the first public library-based seed lending library in the US; in 2008 he went on to co-found with his partner Doug Muller, Hudson Valley Seed Company, a seed, and art company focused on heirloom and open-pollinated vegetable, flower and herb seed.

Ever more interested in seed literacy, sovereignty, and cultural seed rematriation, in 2016, K and Shanyn Siegel, a seed work colleague, founded the now dormant non-profit, Seedshed devoted to sharing and supporting the cultural, agricultural, and ecological diversity of seed.”

If you go back into the  Cultivating Place archives you can find other seed themed episodes too. 

Happy listening!
