About The Harvard Farmers' Market and The Harvard Seed Library

The Harvard Farmers Market is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded ten years ago in Harvard Massachusetts. We are an outdoor food-based market whose mission is to encourage and support local, small scale farmers, gardeners, and local food producers by providing an opportunity to sell produce, food, and farm-related items directly to consumers. Additionally we serve as a platform for education and outreach to our local community about the many benefits of locally farmed food. These outreach projects include a community seed library for local seed preservation and education; a Farm to Friend program that donates farmed food to the elderly, women and children in need; a community canning club, high student scholarships, and more.

About MusicArtSeeds

MS is an alternative music label with a unique partnership model. Musicians will come together with artists and farmers to preserve, and profit from, the integrity of seeds, food culture, and independent expression. The MS label will feature both concept and original albums produced with independent musicians working in a cooperative model of music production, distribution, and promotion.


Funds raised will enable MS to produce Keep It Wild, the first concept album by MS. The album will feature downloadable music, stunning original artwork by independent artists, and unique design construction. Inside each album will live a handcrafted SeedD - a seeded disc embedded with organic garden seeds to propagate food diversity and preservation.

Law of Self Defense Seminar: Harvard, MA; November 15, 2014

TheLaw of Self-Defense Seminarprovides a comprehensive fact- and law-based education on the law of self-defense, presented by a nationally recognized legal expert in the field. TheSeminarsare in-person and conducted by Attorney Andrew Branca.

PRE-REGISTRATION & PRE-PAYMENT ARE REQUIRED. We expect to sell out quickly, if you simply show up the day-of there will not be room for you.

IMPORTANT:Early registration price of the seminar is "HSC SPECIAL DISCOUNTED PRICE" of $100/person. This same seminar run at the Sig Sauer Academy, where I'm a guest instructor, costs $150. Register early for the most savings.

Rather than a mere presentation of boring legal material, the seminar illustrates how the law of self-defense is applied in real court cases involving real people. In addition, the seminar is structured to engage students with scenario-driven applications of the legal principles governing the law of self-defense.

This seminar is customized to the self-defense law of Massachusetts.Participants will leave the seminar armed with the legal knowledge and analytical tools necessary to apply the law of self-defense in a practical and actionable way to situations that arise in their daily lives.

Students will leave the seminar with the knowledge and tools needed to build their legally-sound self-defense strategy that best fits their circumstances, and one that will minimize their legal vulnerability to prosecution and civil suit.

All participants will receive a certificate of completion and an opportunity to obtain the ~300 presentation slides at no cost.

Alternative Dates

If you are sold-out of this date, or would prefer an alternative date, let us know using the form on ourLaw of Self Defense Seminarpage.
