Cultivating Community: Helping Rural Libraries Develop Seed and Story Depositories

Working with the Chestatee Regional Library System (which covers both Dawson and Lumpkin Counties) 2015 ATP students will develop a mechanism to distribute heirlooms seeds and their enthnocultural memories. Students and volunteers will build two portable prototypes of seed dispensing machines, will create packaging for the seeds, develop a marketing campaign, and create a reader's theater from transcriptions and conversations with seed keepers. The project will culminate in October with a public launch at two locations of the Chestatee Regional Library.
