Seed to Seed Seed: Saving and Growing Techniques for Vegetable Gardeners, by Suzanne Ashworth   Seed to Seed is a complete seed-saving guide describing specific techniques for saving the seeds of 160 different vegetables. It is widely acknowledged as the best guide for home gardeners to learn to produce and store seeds on a small scale. (We have two copies of this book in the library – one available to check out, and one that stays in the library for reference.)
The Seed Underground A Growing Revolution to Save Food by Janisse Ray – Ray shows that by the simple and pleasurable act of saving seeds we can wrest our food system from corporate control.  “If you haven’t heard what’s happening with seeds, let me tell you. They’re disappearing, about like every damn thing else. . . . But I’m not going to talk about anything that’s going to make us feel hopeless, or despairing, because there’s no despair in a seed.” — from The Seed Underground.
