Day of Action: Brooklyn Seed Freedom

Join us to align with the Global Movement for Seed Freedom on Swale, a first year floating food forest docked at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. We will gather in a day of action to share seeds, resources and practice seed saving methods to strengthen the seed network in the New York City bioregion. Featuring seeds saved from Swale, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Next Epoch Seed Library, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The Old Stone House, Pioneer Works and YOU!

Bring seeds to share, and a few envelopes to harvest seeds into!

This event will launch an open-source seed library that will be based at Pioneer Works art center in Red Hook.

Swale is a collaborative floating food project built on a 130-foot by 40-foot floating platform that contains an edible forest garden. Functioning as both a sculpture and a tool, the Swale project provides free healthy food at the intersection of public art and service, reinforcing water as a commons and working towards a regenerative public food system.

Pioneer Works is a non-profit foundation in Red Hook, New York City that fosters multidisciplinary creativity in the arts and sciences.
