THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
Join EcoFarm for a hands-on introduction to growing and saving your own seed supply! Community members are welcome. This FREE workshop will be taught by Jesse Hersh, owner of the small seed company start-up Con Semilla. After sharing a brief history of today's seed production industry, basic flower morphology and seed terminology, Jesse will demonstrate various processing techniques with seasonal plant materials. Participants will have the opportunity to learn through hands-on experience about processing and storing of seeds for farm scale production.
Meet at UCSC's Program in Community & Agroecology - PICA, located at the entrance to the Village at the UCSC campus, directly across from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS).
