Step into the Svalbard Seed Bank
Our guest for Discovery on Tap, our event targeted to adults and older youth, is Arctic naturalist and guide Stefano Pozzi. Deep underground above the Arctic circle lies a seed bank, a repository for nations to leave important historical and cultural seeds in safe keeping. These seed deposits will provide the genetic starters for a nation to its rebuild agriculture and crops after a disaster such as war or extinction due to climate change. The Svalbard Seed Bank is not opened to visitors but our guest Stefano Pozzi did get a chance to get inside. He’ll share his story of his seed bank visit plus what it’s like living in the Arctic.
We will be hosting via Zoom and streaming live to our FB page. Sign up to have the Zoom link sent to you.
