SPACE PERMACULTURE: Seed Savers Exchange
Date: Sunday, May 21, 2023
Location: Seymour Marine Discovery Center
Find & Share Seeds as part of the Space Permaculture project. A network of gardens for growing, interpreting, and preserving the seeds of edible plants cultivated for eating in outer space. Founded by the Center for Genomic Gastronomy, an international artist-led think tank sponsored by UCSC's Genomics Institute and OpenLab as visiting artists in residency to engage people to research, grow, taste, and debate the agricultural biodiversity of outer space.
There are many local and national seed saving programs that preserve the historical agricultural biodiversity of a place, but who will assemble, maintain and propagate the plant varieties that have been grown in, or cultivated for, outer space?
Join us Sunday, May 21st, at 10am to collaborate and share some of our favorite seeds, Artist Jorge Menna Barreto will join the conversation and share his thoughts on seeds along with EASP graduate students L. Gilbert and Dav Bell who will talk about their recent greenhouse project at the farm at UCSC.
This event is free and open to the public
