NATURE Lab Workshop with Ellie Irons: Next Epoch Seed Library

December 10, 2019 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm EST

What happens when we preserve plants based on utility or agricultural use alone? What if the plants we value are not the ones that will survive the shifting ecology caused by anthropogenic climate change? The Next Epoch Seed Library is crowd-sourced seed library for spontaneous urban plants, otherwise known as weeds. Join environmental artist Ellie Irons in a seed-sorting workshop where you will learn seed identification, the impact of intra-species genetic diversity, and receive your very own Evening Primrose seeds to distribute throughout the growing ecology of Troy!
