Description: In the days before seed catalogs, harvesting seeds for the next year’s garden was essential. Today, saving and sharing seeds plays a critical role in preserving rare, heirloom varieties and the garden heritage they represent. Join Seed Savers Exchange to discuss the process of saving seeds from garden fruits and vegetables – tomatoes, squash, peppers, melons, beans, and more - and learn how to participate in this backyard preservation.
No registration needed, but space is limited to the first 35 people.
Presenters: As Public Programs Manager of Seed Savers Exchange, Grant Olson helps facilitate the nation’s largest grassroots seed exchange, which connects thousands of gardeners, farmers and chefs across the country and around the world. He encourages participatory preservation of rare and unusual varieties in backyard gardens through events, workshops, publications and online resources found at exchange.seedsavers.org.
