Be a part of a community seed system! In this master class you will learn everything you need to know to become a sage seed saver. Julia Cencebaugh and the crew of the Fairfield Demonstration Vegetable Garden will lead this informative presentation and discussion on the seed saving movement and guide you through the basic knowledge that is needed to begin saving your own seeds. Harvest seeds to preserve your favorite tastes and scents, customize your garden plants and promote diversity. Class discussion focuses on vegetable, ornamental and native plants with a hands‐on component as well. Gardening starts with seeds ‐ why not collect and save your own?
