What Seeds Teach Us About Life: a Conversation with Jennifer Jewell

46m | Dec 27, 2023

Do you love gardens? Do you worry about climate change? I love how my guest today begins her latest book. “A seed is the dormant dream of a new life. A hope, a prayer, the smallest version of an entire life.” If you are a gardener, yes, you know the fundamental value of seeds, without which life can’t continue. I could ask, where does this become personal? A truer question may be, when is this NOT personal? In this time of focus on intense changes in the natural world, from climate crises to vanishing species, what is our part? What is the interdependence of all of life? What if you consider the parallels of the seed to your own life? What “seeds” are you planting?

Jennifer Jewell is a gardener, garden writer, and gardening educator and advocate. Since 2016, she has written and hosted the national award-winning, weekly public radio program and podcast, Cultivating Place. She is particularly interested in the intersections between gardens, the native plant environments around them, and human culture.
