Event Description

Sara Straate, seed historian from Seed Savers Exchange, coordinates their seed history research project, which is an ongoing effort to enhance the documentation of each variety in the Seed Savers Exchange collection. Join us at the History Center of Olmsted County and learn about the diversity of this collection through the heirloom seeds and their unique stories, which honor the garden stewards who preserved them through the generations.


This project was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
