Seed Saving Class

Two classes are offered: Basic and Advanced. Those who complete the Basic Seed Saving Class are eligible to get seeds from the WSU Extension Yakima County Master Gardener Seed Library, and also to contribute seeds back to the Library.

In the Basic Class (8:30 – 10:15) you will learn all the important things to know and to do in order to save your own seeds. In particular, the more common and simpler seeds to save will be discussed in detail.

The Advanced Class (10:45 – 12 noon) will delve into other crops that are a bit more complex for saving seeds. Pre-requisite for taking this is completion of the Basic Class.

Tuition for each class is $10.00, and is payable upon registration. If you have completed the Basic Class in the past, you need not take it over in order to attend the Advanced Class.


PLEASE NOTE: The Ahtanum Youth Activities Park now requires a $2.00 parking fee per day. You must pay that upon entering the Park. Monthly and Annual Passes are available at the park, or from the City of Union Gap.


please download the catalog and order form for this year’s seed library.
