Learn to save your own flower and vegetable seeds for next year’s garden and to share with others! In this hands-on class, participants will learn the basic principles including which home garden species are good candidates for seed saving; and how to harvest, clean, process and store seeds for the next year. Learn the basics of saving wet seeded crops such as tomatoes and peppers. We will also go over a bit of advanced seed saving for trickier crops that need isolation or wet fermentation.
Dress to go outside in the CCE gardens (weather permitting) to harvest different types of vegetable and flower seeds which we'll clean using different techniques and tools.
