While many gardeners are happy to save seeds from both common and unusual ornamental flowers, the confidence to save vegetable seeds has drastically faded as a common and traditional practice. Drawing on experience from organic growing and community seed groups, Wayne will present the essential background of seed saving along with hands-on demonstrations of selecting, harvesting, processing, drying and storing your favourite crops. Seed saving has many benefits: It saves money, builds our knowledge and appreciation of the beautiful full life cycles of our plants, helps biodiversity and living conservation, and provides abundant resilience for ourselves and our communities. Seed saving is a powerful skill that every gardener should have! Participants will take home samples of saved seeds.
