We have a special guest presenter –Rebecca Newburn of Richmond Grows Seed Lending
Rebecca Newburn is a permaculturalist and math and science educator for over 25 years. In 2010, she attended Seed School with Bill McDorman. Her “Create a Library” resources have been used to support hundreds of seed libraries open around the world.
She also developed and curates SeedLibraries.net resources. Several years ago, when legal challenges arose around our right to save and share seeds locally, she was a partner in the National Save Seed Sharing Campaign. The Campaign successfully passed legislation to protect seed sharing in key states and amended the Recommended Universal State Seed Law to exempt seed libraries from commercial regulations.
She is a charter member of the Richmond Rivets, a transition town initiative in Richmond, California, where she lives. She can sometimes be seen walking around dressed as Rosie the Riveter. She loves her “Can Do” spirit and she’s a hometown girl. Rebecca also created the 2 Steps a Month to Emergency Preparedness project, a program to help prepare individuals and their communities for disasters.
Impact Hub San Francisco is at the corner of 15th and Mission, 1 block from 16th St / Mission BART. Entrance is along Mission.
