As we re-imagine our relationships to what we eat, Local Food Report creator Elspeth Hay takes us to the heart of the local food movement to talk with growers, harvesters, processors, cooks, policy makers and visionaries

Vineyarders Inspired to Start Saving and Sharing Community Seeds

Elspeth Hay

  Ken Greene is the founder of the country's first seed library in a public library. Recently he came to Martha's Vineyard to help the community get a local seed library up and running. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay talks with Ken about how a seed library works and what some of the community challenges and benefits are to getting one going. You can read more about the shape the Vineyard seed library is taking and the varieties it will offer this season on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore.

Next week Elspeth will learn about a seed library in Barnstable.

An avid locavore, Elspeth lives in Wellfleet and writes a blog about food. Elspeth is constantly exploring the Cape, Islands, and South Coast and all our farmer's markets to find out what's good, what's growing and what to do with it. Her Local Food Report airs Thursdays at 8:30 on Morning Edition and 5:45pm on All Things Considered, as well as Saturday mornings at 9:30.
