Class: SEED SAVING

August 18 @ 10:00 am EDT - 3:00 pm EDT

Seed saving brings tremendous benefits to the willing gardener. Learn how seeds develop, stay dormant, and germinate. This hands-on workshop covers harvesting, cleaning, and storing a wide spectrum of native seeds. Spend time in the field observing and collecting seeds, then practice cleaning. Take your seeds home at the end of class. Bring a lunch and dress appropriately for the field.

Co-sponsored by New England Wild Flower Society.
