Encounters with the neighbourhood: with Seed Banks

Seed banks preserve what is vital for healthy and sustainable farming systems.

The UK Vegetable Genebank is one such seed bank – what is it and why is it important? What can the work of the UK Vegetable Genebank tell us about the importance of the past to the present and the future, and how we can use the wisdom of the past to create better crops for the future? What are the options for collaboration and community involvement? Join us for this discussion.
