    "Ecology of Research: Seeds of Time" Final Presentation
    Gates of Heaven | 302 E. Gorham Street | Limited Seating

    This final event will include a public presentation of the map, broadsides and individual research that students have worked on independently and collaboratively with various departments on the UW-Madison campus as well as community groups.

    Seeds of Time at the Gates of Heaven provides a window into the range of topics explored during the semester long course that Amy taught. Students worked individually and collaboratively to create an arc of experiences that express their personal research as it relates to Seed Journey. Each component of the night will be a curated walk-through and participation of the student’s presentations. Student’s performance exhibitions include: a choreographed square dance, kneading bread, information on seed origins and use, and water testing.
