Medium seed

Interested in saving seeds but don't know where to start? Have you saved seeds in the past but your plants didn't grow as expected?

In this workshop, we will go over the differences between open-pollinated and hybrid seed, planning your garden for seed saving, basics of plant reproduction and pollen-isolation techniques for reliable results.

Each participant will leave with a selection of open-pollinated flower, herb or vegetable seeds to start at home, as well as a detailed growing plan for successful seed-saving.
