Melanie Lasaste, founder of Davis Seed Savers Alliance, will be speaking Oct. 22 at City Farm behind Lillard Hall about how to establish a seed library and a seed garden.

A seed library is a storehouse where seeds are held and members of the library are able to borrow seeds for their garden. Once their seeds are grown into plants, the harvested seeds from those plants are returned for other members to use. According to City Farm Faculty Coordinator Robyn Waxman, collecting seeds is one of the most important things people can do.

“Saving seeds might be one of the most important things we do in times of food insecurity,” said Waxman. “Why not learn how to do that now?”

Lataste will be bringing her seed library on wheels for all to see, and she may be handing out free seeds for students to start their own garden.

The event will be held from  12-1 p.m. City College students are welcome to attend.

For information on the Seed Savers Alliance event, contact Robyn Waxman at (916)558-2280.

What happens after 'Romeo and Juliet'

ANYONE WHO TRIES TO create a sequel to William Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, “Romeo and Juliet,” likely finds that such a task is a challenge to execute.

Shakespeare’s name alone forces literary junkies to be hyper cautious when examining work that attempts to meet the late playwright’s standard of passion and drama.

Still, City Theatre actors delivered a bold production of Scottish playwright Sharman Macdonald’s “After Juliet,” a sequel to William Shakespeare’s beloved “Romeo and Juliet” in September and displayed, once again, why City College’s theater program is top notch.

The play, seemed to provide a challenge for the playwright in the way it picks up from Shakespeare’s dramatic ending that leaves any sequel without the original’s two leads.

Still, like the original, here lust and long-lasting family feuds carried the meat of the plot.
