Seed Saving In the Garden or Small Farm
Saving your own seed from produce is fun, practical, and beautiful. We will chat about the state of the seed industry and why we need the participation of small farms and gardeners. Then discuss the motivations for seed saving from uniquely tasty produce to supporting pollinators and diversity. Finally, the practical side of planning, cleaning seeds, and testing germination.
Eric Kampe has been saving seeds since 2007, and currently runs Ann Arbor Seed Company, a small farm that produces a diverse selection of locally grown vegetables.
