Saving Seeds

  • Date: Monday, September 15, 2014
  • Time: 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
  • Location: Luther College, Location TBD

Seeds can be expensive. Have you ever thought about saving your own? It’s not as difficult or intimidating as it might sound. Join Seed Savers staff for an hour-long session on how to save your own seeds. Participants will learn which varieties are easiest to save and the best methods for properly processing and storing seed. Keep in mind that some varieties cross-pollinate in the field and in order to remain ‘true to type” need to be grown in isolation gardens that are ¼-½  mile away from other varieties. Seed Savers staff will provide an overview of which seeds you should attempt to save from your own garden. Whether you intend to save seeds this year or are just interested in learning more about the process, we invite you to join us.
