Event Description

Currently room for a few more participants.
Beginners (9-10:30 am): basics of seedsaving w/focus on annual and biennial food plants. We'll identify self-pollinators and cross-pollinators, and talk about the best seeds to start saving. We'll discuss the easiest seeds to save in small gardens and why, and how to harvest, dry and store seed. We'll clean some seed. Based on the booklet, The 5 Levels of Seed Saving.
Advanced (11-12:30 am): For those who understand basics of seedsaving. We'll discuss topics that relate to saving more challenging food plants, such as cross pollinators (squash) and biennials such as brassicas, esp. as related to city gardens. Bring Q's for an open space format; we'll address your seedsaving issues.
5 Levels of Seed Saving booklets will be available for purchase for $6.
