“Sustainable Martha’s Vineyard” is an independent documentary series that highlights islanders working towards creating a sustainable community and environment. The series explores interesting stories that bring Martha’s Vineyard’s ecosystems to life and that help foster a human nature connection.
EPISODE 1: “Planting a Seed Library”
In our first episode, “Plating a Seed Library,” we speak with Ken Greene, Managing and Creative Director of Hudson Valley Seed Library and Noli Taylor, director of Island Grown Schools, about the importance of seeds, and what it means to start a “seed library.” The Martha’s Vineyard Community Seed Library brings the knowledge of how to save seeds back to our island community while creating a central space where seeds can be freely shared. Over time the goal is to create a locally adapted collection of seeds, and a community of growers engaged in the ancient practice of seed saving. Saving and sharing seeds increases local food security, strengthens a community’s sense of self reliance, and safeguards genetic diversity, while at the same time honoring the age old tradition of passing down seeds from generation to generation.
