Epigenetics and Seed Saving: Breeding Resilient, Locally Adapted Plants by Alan Booker
From early experiences learning edible and medicinal plants, Alan developed a love of being outdoors and observing natural systems. By his early twenties, he was teaching wilderness skills, survival, and other nature connection skills. Today, Alan uses this background to help students more deeply understand natural ecosystems in order to become better designers.
In addition to teaching the PDC, Alan also provides consulting and workshops on earthworks, soil remediation, composting, forest gardening, holistic management of pastureland, keyline design, aquaculture and aquaponics, off-grid energy systems, and natural building systems.
Alan is the founder and executive director of the Institute of Integrated Regenerative Design, which provides education and research in support of regenerative communities.
In this 2 hr lecture recording you'll dive deep into:
-Breeding plants that are genetically capable of adapting to changing circumstances
-Maintaining the microbiome during seed saving
-Using Metagenomic Analysis to understand the HGT in plant ecosystems
-Carefully selecting plants for seed production
and so much more!
