About this event

Do you rely on getting seeds or starts from a nursery? Since COVID there has been a rush on seeds. Create a more resilient garden by making seed saving part of your practice. What will you save?

Over 94% of the seed commercially available 100 years ago is gone. The loss of genetic diversity and the current model of breeding for uniformity makes our food system much more susceptible to shocks from pest and diseases to severe weather events from climate change. Additionally, most of the seeds both farmers and home gardeners purchase are grown outside of the US making access more vulnerable. Help create a local seed shed in your community and be part of the solution.
