Seed Keepers of CrescentvilleA novel about a Vermont farming community’s struggle to save its organic fields, heirloom crops and old time breeds from genetic contamination.

“This novel highlights the question we all face daily– Will science save us from ourselves? With compelling characters and an engaging story, Jeanne Sable asks us to take a hard look at the issue of biotechnology. The question of who should control our seeds is woven through the story, and left for us to answer in the end.”
Amy Shollenberger, former policy director, Rural Vermont
