The Wessaweskeag Historical Society presents a program with Neil Lash March 14 at 7 p.m. at the society's meeting room behind the South Thomaston Library at the corner of Route 73 and Dublin Road.

A potluck supper will begin at 6 p.m. All are welcome to both the supper and the program.

Lash is the co-founder of Medomak Valley High School’s internationally recognized Heirloom Seed Project. He will discuss the Heirloom Seed Project's origin and its development over the past few years. The most unusual aspect of the program is the historic seeds that have been gathered from around the world as well as locally since 1991.

The school’s Living History Arboretum of more than 40 trees contains some of the most historic trees of any arboretum in Maine. In 2017, the project was selected by the National Garden Clubs of America to receive its annual Award of Merit. Last year the program received the Source Award of Sustainability from the Maine Sunday Telegram. Lash has been teaching at MVHS since 1980, and previously taught science in the Auburn and Rumford school systems.
