Join us at the Howe Library for a gallery presentation and lecture by Ken Greene. Mr. Greene brings his passion for seed diversity, heirloom seeds and fine art to his work. His company, Hudson Valley Seed Company, sustainably grows heirloom seeds at the certified organic and certified organic handler farm in Accord, NY. These are sold in “Art Packs” printed with specially commissioned fine contemporary art. The gallery presentation will feature these original works of art. Mr. Greene’s presentation will cover the importance of seed biodiversity, sustainable and organic gardening and farming, with an emphasis how we can support this in our own gardens and daily lives.

Join us for a special screening of the documentary “Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds” with an introduction and Q & A session following the film led by Ken Greene, founder of the Hudson Valley Seed Library.
