Presenter Bio: In 2004 K Greene started the United States’ first seed library within a public library, in Gardiner, NY. Seeds swept K away, and in 2008 he and Doug Muller grew the library into the Hudson Valley Seed Company, whose regional seed farm is devoted to ethically producing seed for home gardeners and farmers, and celebrating seeds through art. HVSC packets are well known for their stunning designs created by local artists. K is also the founder/director of Seedshed, a non-profit organization focused on growing seed justice for seed beings.
