It is possible to bypass the garden seed industry and save your own seed from year to year...if you know what you need to do! In this special collaboration with the Seed Savers Exchange (www.seedsavers.org), you will learn some basic concepts about seed saving, and how to create a garden that is self-perpetuating. Explore the difference between open-pollinated hybrid seed and gain an understanding of plant taxonomy, reproductive structures, and pollination methods with Shannon Carmody, who has been the public programs manager at Seed Savers Exchange since 2009.
