Event: Seed Saving 101: An Introductory Workshop

Seed saving is an ancient tradition going back nearly 12,000 years. It has transformed the human race and is a fundamental part of our story as a species. But it isn't difficult!

 

Extension Educator Jennifer Werlin and Horticulture/Small Farms Assistant Amelia Lohrenz will host a lightning-round, hands-on workshop covering the basics of saving seeds:

  • Selection/Genetics
  • Biology/Structure
  • Harvest/Cleaning/Storage
  • Wild Seed
  • History/Industry/Patents
  • Pollination/Breeding
  • Spirit of Seeds

The workshop will take place on Tuesday, October 4th from 9am-12pm at the new Teton Valley Community Garden. The garden is located just to the north of the fairgrounds building.
