Seed saving also lowers cost and allows growers to ensure their varieties are especially suited to their specific region and growing conditions.

In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of seed saving including terms, what can be saved by the backyard gardener, how to grow and harvest seed, seed viability, as well as processing and storage options.
