Description

“Every seed tells a story.” Though small and often not noticed or examined carefully, seeds are simply amazing—what they look like, what they do, how they do it, as they work towards their astounding goal of self-replication. Teri Chace finds strangeness and fascination in the seeds of plants as familiar as oaks and dandelions, and as curious as figs and hellebores. Join us for Teri’s engrossing talk based on her AHS-award-winning book Seeing Seeds, with photography by Robert Llewellyn. (Note to photographers: Teri will explain Robert’s “image-stacking” technique).

Teri Dunn Chace is a writer and editor with more than 35 titles in publication, including Seeing Seeds (winner of a 2016 American Horticultural Society Book award). She brings complex scientific and environmental topics to general audiences in her engaging and accurately researched articles for various magazines, including Massachusetts Audubon Society publications and the Appalachian Mountain Club’s member magazine.
