Brown Bag: Saving & Sharing Seeds Workshop (With Seed Savers Exchange


In the days before seed catalogs, harvesting seeds for the next year’s garden was essential. Today, saving and sharing seeds plays a critical role in preserving rare, heirloom varieties and the garden heritage they represent. Join Seed Savers Exchange (whose seeds you love and buy from us!) to discuss the process of saving seeds from garden fruits and vegetables – tomatoes, squash, peppers, melons, beans, and more - and learn how to participate in this backyard preservation. Bring your lunch and your questions!
