    10:30 am-11:30 am

    “Wendell Berry Is Not a Prophet. He doesn’t claim to see the future. He’s not crazy about the present, either.

Reading selections available at the Charlotte Library and Charlotte Senior Center.

  • Seed Library Film & Discussion
    4:00 pm-5:30 pm

    Watch "Open Sesame, the Story of Seeds", the excellent documentary film about the magic and importance of seeds, --those amazing essential components of everything from fabric to fuels and literally the source of all our food.  Ponder why seeds sprout, and how even tiny seeds can hold so much biological potential.  Gain understanding of how and why seeds of open-pollinated heirloom plant varieties around the world have gone from being treasured and saved for replanting since the beginning of agriculture (giving us the resilience of rich biological diversity which can adapt to changing conditions), to today's corporate monopoly on seeds and their  availability.  Seeds are no longer a communal/public resource.  By co-opting seed genetics with genetic-modification, patent law and legal threats, corporations today control 82% of the world-wide market.  Tragically, approximately 90% of the fruit and vegetable varieties that existed 100 years ago are now extinct, --and that means lost forever.

    The film interviews farmers (including David Zuckerman from Hinesburg), renegade gardeners, committed seed-saving individuals and institutions, environmental activists, and artists. It follows the story of seeds through the challenges and triumphs of these seed saver heroes.

    Share reactions to the film and ideas for how to grow a simple but wonderful Seed Library right here at Charlotte Library.

    Facilitated by Margaret Woodruff and Linda Hamilton
