Event Details

This class is an introduction to seed saving, including considerations for planning your garden with seed saving in mind. We will look at how pollination happens in various species, and how this affects things like population sizes and isolation techniques. You will learn practical ways to ensure high-quality seed. Time allowing we will also look at plant selection and rogueing, as well as seed labeling protocol and seed storage requirements. Later classes will include hands-on techniques for harvest in fall 2013.
