Futurefarmers – Workshop 1: Local Area Seed Network NY

4 October 2012 from 9am to 5pm

L.A.S.N. is a response to the disparity among seed saving strategies: it is a mapping and propagation project that mines the most local seeds. It poses the idea that maybe every city already has a seed bank and locates available seeds within a given radius; corner stores, peopleГ­s homes, toys, trash, etc. Garnered from these sites, an unexpected array of seeds unfold; bags of lentils from local stores, wheat seeds inside small toys, beans in the game of Kalaha/Mancala, sunflower seeds, corn, rice in hacky sacks, etc.
