The Next Epoch Seed Library created a room-sized installation for the 2016 exhibition, Living Together: Nurturing Nature in the Built Environment, curated by Kristen Evangelista, for William Paterson University galleries.

The installation included a library structure made largely from found and upcycled materials, including:

  • storage drawers for seed packets
  • a seed sign-out sheet
  • seeds displayed in drawers and jars
  • a monitor playing video of our seed collecting, sorting, and packaging process
  • shelves for reference books
  • a reading area
  • a bulletin board with community contributions and maps
  • a seed propagation table
  • a seed sorting and packaging table
  • 3 seed microscopy photographs


The Next Epoch Seed Library contributed to the group show, Apocalypse Diet: What
