Medland speaks Thursday on heirloom seeds, seed genetics
Vicki Medland from the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity will be giving two talks on heirloom seeds and seed genetics this spring.
The first is 5:30 pm, Thursday (Jan. 27) at House of Tawet, 601 N. Broadway. The gathering will include discussion of the genetics of heritage, hybrid, and GMO seeds and how current agricultural practices affect agricultural biodiversity.
Medland’s second presentation will be at the Neville Museum as part of their Natural History series at 6:30 pm. Wednesday, Feb. 9. This talk will walk the audience through the historical garden that is our agricultural seed legacy, with stops to look at some of our important plants to better understand their genetics and to consider the desirability of agro-biodiversity.
