Beginners: The basics of seed saving with a 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. RSVP here for Beginners or to seedworkshops email address above.
We're also offering Advanced Seed Saving (11 am-12:30 pm): For those who understand the basics of seed saving. We'll discuss topics that relate to saving more challenging food plants, such as cross pollinators (squash) and biennials such as brassicas, especially as they relate to seed saving challenges in city gardens. Bring your questions and we'll address your seed saving issues. RSVP for Advanced here or to seedworkshops email address above.
