Seed Saving for Gardeners and Farmers
Monday, September 12, 2011 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
Join Jared Zystro of the Organic Seed Alliance to learn to grow seed, steward heirlooms, and create new varieties at this
class for West Coast gardeners and farmers. Whether you’ve saved
seed before or are a complete beginner, this is a great chance to learn
about seed and connect with other seed savers in your region. We will
cover basic seed concepts including timing of planting, ideal population
sizes, preventing cross-pollination, selecting for improved varieties,
seed maturation and harvest, and seed cleaning techniques.
This event is sponsored by the Organic Seed Alliance, Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library and the Richmond Public Library.
