Seeds! Saving and Starting (Tue. 16 Jan, 2018 10:00 am - 11:00 am)

natural gardenerSeeds! Saving and Starting

Tuesday, January 16th

Since before we had commercial seed companies, home gardeners and farmers have been saving seeds and doing their own plant breeding, developing cultivars that were well-suited to their own palates, as well as the microclimates in their own gardens. To complete the cycle, they knew how to start those seeds the next season. Come learn how to save and then start your own vegetable seeds to save money, preserve genetic diversity, and ensure you’ll never be without that favorite vegetable variety.
