The Story and Practice of Seed Saving – An Introduction

ID : 5798   
« back to classes page

This class is for anyone who wants to grow closer to the origins of their food! Join Melody at Cabrillo’s Horticulture Center as she introduces students to the reviving art and science of saving your own seeds. Beginning with a brief discussion of the history of seeds, this workshop includes an overview of our current food system, and offers an opportunity to grow more intimately connected to where our food comes from. We will explore hands-on winnowing (sifting) of seeds, and students will come away with a small bundle of quality seeds, as well as the knowledge required to engage as a seed saver in their daily lives. Come explore your sense of wonder in this inspiring workshop dedicated to better understanding seeds and their stories!
