Limited Capacity seats available

There is great need for increased local agriculture production in order to ensure food security in Hawai’i, and many libraries and organizations are heeding the call by hosting seed shares. A seed share is a station where patrons may give or take free seeds, as well as find information that will empower them to grow and harvest their own food. This presentation will cover why libraries need seed shares, how to start a free station, and how collaborating with sustainable partners plants the proverbial seeds that will provide tools and resources to patrons that can help strengthen food security.
