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. Last spring 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.

This piece is a rebroadcast. It originally aired on 5.8.2014. Today, Martha's Vineyard has a seed library up and running at the West Tisbury Public Library.

Audio will be added later today.
