Description

Do you have a favorite tomato or lettuce variety that you grow every year? Learn how easy it is to save seeds from your favorite plants, with enough seed left over to share with others. Explore the reproduction details of common crops, make a plan to save for next season, and then have fun threshing and winnowing seeds.

In this class you will learn:

  • The benefits of saving your own seeds
  • How plants are pollinated
  • Cross-pollination issues
  • Easy crops for seed saving
  • Seed processing and storage
  • Seed viability testing

This in-person class will include a conversational lecture with show & tell, a tour of the garden, and time for questions and answers with the instructor. A detailed outline with recommended resources will also be provided. Class size is limited to about 15 people, and we will be following current public health recommendations. Please dress for the weather.
