Local expert to discuss heirloom seeds Jan. 28

Jan 15, 2020

Camden — Heron Breen, coordinator of research and development for Fedco Seeds, will discuss Maine and New England Heirlooms in the library’s Picker Room Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. The series is free and open to the public.

Born and raised in the small central Maine town of Saint Albans, Breen’s plant “roots” derive from childhood chores in his family’s large gardens and high school summers spent working on a local organic vegetable farm. An ongoing career at Fedco Seeds has engaged him in diverse elements of the retail seed business including various daily operations, managing trial programs, and catalog writing. His day job has run parallel to establishing a personal farm operation which focuses on seed production and plant breeding. Breen is a co-organizer of the Northeast Organic Seed Conference and an OSA board member.
