Saving seeds was once an essential part of the culture of farming, but most modern vegetable growers now rely on commercial seed. The cost of this convenience is seed that has no relationship with the specific conditions of our farms and gardens. Through seed saving we can reinvigorate the relationship between seeds and land, creating plants that are uniquely adapted to thrive. This workshop will explore practical ways to integrate seed saving into your farm so that you can individualize your crops for flavor, nutrition, color, yield, disease resistance, and more. You cannot buy seeds that will be so good for your land!
