THE SEEDS OF CHANGE
An essay based onThe Coker Experimental Seed Farms National Historic Site, Hartsville, S.C., USA by Lonnie W. Franklin, MA, Univ. of Leicester INTRODUCTION
Today is all we have.Yesterday, gone forever, is but a memory.Tomorrow when it comes is just today.Our memories, our hopes Are but a part of now.Today, Today! Great God,‘Tis all thou gavest me. And yet, ‘tis all I need.This hour holds the lore of every age, And hope of future years. And instant action, instant love.
David R. Coker (date unknown)There is a great deal of history in the story of the Coker family and the Coker Farms. TheCokers were among the earliest settlers in the area, starting a plantation on lands long occupied by some of the earliest American Natives in the United States (Allen, 2008, personal communication). Cokers servedin the War Between the States, were instrumental in the development of the town of Hartsville; with father and son serving as mayors; and in the State House of Representatives (Asbury, S., Semmes, R., 1998,intro.).
