Plantations gardener Glenn Bucien is giving lecture, “Heirloom Vegetables: Past, Present and the Future” on March 29
Glenn Bucien is giving the first presentation in Geneva Historical Society’s 2012 Spring Lecture series, “Heirloom Vegetables: Past, Present and the Future” at 7:30 p.m. March 29 at the museum, 543 S. Main St. in Geneva.
Today, most seed production has shifted to large companies which invest heavily in producing seeds with specific genetic traits like disease and insect resistance. Bucien will talk about this shift to industrial agriculture and concerns about its sustainability, and share ideas for all gardeners to participate in the saving of seed.
Glenn Bucien is the caretaker of the Pounder Heritage Vegetable Garden in Plantations' Botanical Garden.
