Have you always wanted to save your own seeds but don't know where to start? This introduction to seed saving will provide a basic foundation to save your own seeds. We will highlight the basic steps to plant, grow, harvest, clean, store and exchange seeds. While this class lecture-based , it will establish the necessary vocabulary and background needed for any beginning grower and seed saver.
