In this session, you’ll learn seed keeping basics so that you can grow your favorite plants from year to year, without reaching for the seed catalog.
Guided by video demos and knowledge from Charlotte and Dove from the Sand Mountain Seed Bank, you’ll see the full process from knowing when to harvest, to drying and preserving good quality seeds. We’ll go over appropriate methods (wet or dry) for saving beans/legumes, squash, melons, and tomatoes. We’ll also discuss the vital importance of seed saving and the unique challenges we face in our region.
Bring your questions big and small! Don’t forget to join for the online seed swap where we’ll be swapping heirloom seeds- Pass It On!
