Skill Share-Seed Saving


Why save your own seeds? There are many reasons, more control over what you grow, more varieties available, to preserve rare varieties, economics… or an act of resistance against an increasingly aggressive industrial agriculture system bent on absurd uniformity and corporate control. Come learn the basics skills and techniques needed to save the seeds of all your favorite crops.
Sliding Scale of $7-$10 per person

Instructor: Aaron Parker

This skill share is part of the Grand Opening week ( May 5th-11th) at Resilient Roots Permaculture Farm. Please check out their website for more information on other events, www.resilientroots.blogspot.com or on the Eastern Cumberland County Permaculture Meetup.

    Great information about seed saving and Aaron will be my new go-to person for unusual edibles. I wonder if anyone has started de-hybridizing the Maine tomatoberry!
