Seed Bank Collection

Natural seed abundance, disappearing diversity.

The “Seed Bank” series expresses a personal passion for preserving seed diversity (I am a devoted gardener as well as an obsessive seed collector).  It celebrates seeds' natural abundance as well as each generation's essential task of seed collecting as a legacy of generosity, a gift to humanity’s future, a legacy now tragically subverted and co-opted by commercial interests.  I contrast the liberal character of natural seed distribution and respectful agricultural practices with the destructive, dead-end stratagems of businesses that try to force sales of “terminator” seeds.
