Congratulations to Hannah van Eendenburg for her successful defense today of her MA paper, “Colorado Seed Savers: Resistance and Resilience in the Face of Global Seed Commodification.” Hannah’s research was based on 13 months of multi-sited research around Colorado on high-altitude seed savers, their exchange networks, and their resistance to the corporate control of seeds. Her committee was me (chair), Kate Goldfarb, and Terry McCabe.
Here is an article from Hannah based on her MA research: https://greenamerica.org/story/seed-saving-front-lines-climate-crisis.
Hannah is the co-founder of the S.A.V.E. (Seeds Adapted to Variable Ecosystems) Salida Seed Library in Salida, Colorado.
