Seed: The Future of Food

September 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

imagesLike a seed, the idea of seed-saving has to take root. Even before that can happen, a seed has to be planted. The added value, economic opportunity and social benefits of seed-saving are enormous. What will it take for us to start thinking in “seedsheds” and how do we affect change no matter where we are on the seed-saving (supporting) scale? Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance’s Bill McDorman inspires the audience to connect deeply with the world and empowers them to begin to plant seeds wherever they are. Let it begin now!

Bill is executive director and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance (RMSA), a new nonprofit seed conservation organization serving the Rocky Mountain West. Previously, he was director of Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tucson, Arizona. Bill founded three seed companies including Seeds/Trust High Altitude Gardens and co-founded several nonprofits including the Sawtooth Botanical Garden in Hailey, Idaho. He is author of “Basic Seed Saving.” He and his wife created an innovative week-long training called Seed School, the educational centerpiece of RMSA.
