Course Overview

In the days before seed catalogs, collecting and saving seeds for the next year’s garden was essential. Today, seed saving plays a critical role in preserving rare, heirloom varieties and the garden heritage they represent. Join Seed Savers Exchange to discuss the complete process of seed saving - from garden planning to seed processing - and learn how to participate in this backyard preservation. We will explore plant pollination, plan our home gardens, investigate differences between open-pollinated and hybrid seed, practice threshing, winnowing, and fermenting seeds, and build our own seed screens for processing and drying. Seed swap to follow.
