A Simple Guide to Planning a Seed Garden

Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 9:00 AM

Running Time: 2 hours & 30 minutes

Ends At: 11:30 AM


Learn how planning ahead can yield big results from your harvest. The seed life cycle is already happening in your garden, so it is easy to integrate seed saving into your personal seed bank and keep plants - including vegetables, herbs and flowers - dynamic and adapting to your garden. This class breaks down the easy-to-save, intermediate-to-save and advanced-to-save varieties most commonly grown in home gardens.

The Parmenters will cover wet and dry seed saving, plant families, seed terms, resources, harvesting, storage, isolation distances, hand pollinating and more.


Price: $31, $26 member
