Heirlooms and open pollinated varieties are gaining in popularity, not just because they increase our biodiversity but also because you can save seed from them year to year. Come learn how to save seed, why you should know how to save seed, and how to keep varieties from cross-pollinating. Students will get to take home a packet of open pollinated seeds to plant the following year.
Sunday, August 25th 11am - 1pm at Dog Island Farm
