The Farm Report is back for 2016(!), hosted by guest host Holli Cederholm. She starts off the season as most farmers and gardeners do: by turning to their favorite seed companies. The Hudson Valley Seed Library in Accord, NY, was initiated in 2004 as one of the first seed libraries in the country. Over time this borrowable seed collection grew from the catalog of the Gardiner Public Library to what it is today: a small farm-based for-profit seed company. Ken Greene, its Managing and Creative Director, joins The Farm Report for a look into the world of seed sourcing and the value of education for seed operations.

“If I learn how to save seed in my little garden, then whatever seed I save I’ve removed myself from the system I don’t want to be a part of.” [4:00]
