For our next Garden Book Club selection, we will be reading:
The Seed Underground: A Growing Revolution to Save Food by Janisse Ray
“The Seed Underground is a journey to the frontier of seed-saving. It is driven by stories, both the author’s own and those from people who are waging a lush and quiet revolution in thousands of gardens across America to preserve our traditional cornucopia of food by simply growing old varieties and eating them. The Seed Underground pays tribute to time-honored and threatened varieties, deconstructs the politics and genetics of seeds, and reveals the astonishing characters who grow, study, and save them.”

Our Fall 2019 club meeting will be on Thursday, October 24 from 6:30-8pm at Soupergirl, located right next to the Takoma metro stop. Soupergirl offers soups for sale that are incredibly healthy. They are 100% plant-based, low salt, low fat, and most importantly, absolutely delicious, so plan to come a bit early to purchase and eat your dinner with the garden book club.
The Fall Meeting of our Garden Book Club is also where we decide the four titles we will be reading and discussing the next year, so please bring your suggestions of garden-related books for the club.
Please RSVP to the book club event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/656515708188383/, so we know how many chairs to reserve for our group.
The Washington Gardener Magazine’s Garden Book Club is free and open to all. We meet quarterly on a weekday evening near a metro-accessible location in the DC-area. We will announce the details of each upcoming meeting about two months in advance. Please check back on this blog for schedule updates and announcements.
