Seed Saving Skills

Sunday, 5 September '21   9:30am – 4:30pm EDT
Michigan Folk School Campus, 7734 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor MI 48105

Seed saving is the very heart of sustainable organic gardening, preservation of heirlooms and plant variety, food security and economy in growing your own crops, independence from patented seed, and understanding and supporting the circle of botanical life. In this workshop, we will cover some basic plant biology and typical lifecycles, learn about seed production and methods of encouraging seed production in the home garden. We will learn which plants are suitable for which methods of seed production, when and how to optimally harvest seed, and the processing and storage of seed. We will learn about how different types of pollination affect our seed. We will have plenty of hands-on material and demonstrations and opportunities to practice techniques yourself. You will be ready to start saving your own seeds this fall to get ready for next year!
