Lentil Underground featuring author Liz Carlisle and the BASIL Seed Library
Saturday | May 23, 2015 | 2:00 pm
Berkeley Public Library, Main Branch | 2090 Kittredge Street, Berkeley, CA 94704
The Berkeley Public Library and The Ecology Center present a talk by Liz Carlisle, Berkeley resident and author of the new book Lentil Underground, an “inspiring story of a handful of colorful pioneers who have successfully bucked the chemically-based food chain and the entrenched power of agribusiness’s one percent, by stubbornly banding together”. Books will be available for sale and signing.
Following Liz’s talk, we’ll discuss issues facing local gardeners who wish to share heirloom seeds. Neil Thapar of the Sustainable Economies Law Center will talk about the legality of seed sharing and staff from the Ecology Center will be on hand to discuss the Bay Area Seed Interchange Library (BASIL). All are encouraged to bring seeds to share and swap with your neighbors and BASIL.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
