Do you want to start saving your own seeds? In this workshop, Mel Sylvestre will provide you with the knowledge needed to understand the basic principles behind seed saving and the skills necessary to begin seed saving. It will also allow you to develop an understanding of basic plants reproduction biology and to learn the vocabulary of the seed saving world.
