ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — SeedBroadcast aims to put the culture back in agriculture.
At the Albuquerque Museum exhibition, visitors will encounter glass gourds cradling seeds dangling from the ceiling. Audiotapes will tell “seed stories” describing their contents. A 14- by 16-foot triptych photo montage celebrating traditional farming methods dominates an entire wall. A time-lapse video shows a garden spanning all four seasons.
“Seed: Climate Change Resilience” is open through Sept. 22. The University of New Mexico-affiliated collective SeedBroadcast is mounting the exhibition with the help of New Mexico indigenous seed savers, acequia farmers, permaculturists and more to explore seed resilience in an era of tumultuous climate change.
