FROM SEED SAVING TO FOOD SOVEREIGNTY
GMO Free NJ welcomes farmers Nate Kleinman and Dusty Hinz, founders of the Experimental Farm Network (EFN) for a special workshop on seed starting and food sovereignty. The EFN, a New Jersey nonprofit organization, is an open network aimed at reversing climate change by collaboratively developing the crops and agricultural systems of the future.
The class will start with a community seed exchange; participants are encouraged to bring seeds collected from this past harvest. The practical part of the workshop will focus on proper storage of seeds, seed starting and care of seedlings. Attendees will also hear Nate and Dusty’s thoughts on how seed saving is related to food sovereignty and the movement toward a new paradigm of fair and sustainable agriculture. Find out how current policy issues impact our food choice freedom and learn what you can do about it. Discover how the work done in one’s own garden can help empower communities and create true food justice.
A selection of rare seeds from EFN will be available for purchase.
This event is free and open to the public
