Ken Greene is founder of the first seed library in the country, a project he germinated in a small town library. Twelve years later the Hudson Valley Seed Library has blossomed into a seed company and seed farm devoted to producing seed for home gardeners and farmers, fostering a regional seed-saving community, and celebrating seeds through art. Greene is on the board of directors for the Organic Seed Alliance, and part of the planning committee for the national Organic Seed Growers Conference and the upcoming Northeast Seed Growers Conference. He has given presentations for the Northeast Organic Farming Association, Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, Culinary Institute of America, Seed Savers Exchange, National Heirloom Expo, Cornell University, Sante Fe Farmers Market Institute, and many other conferences and organizations.
