Seed Saving - Learning in The Garden
July 23rd 2023
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Mid Season Planting
Mechanical isolation for Seed Saving
With July's workshop we will begin the sessions in which seed saving becomes the primary focus. If you are interested in seed production, the workshops we offer for the rest of the year will give you an excellent jumping off point in your work as a seed keeper.
This months workshop is full of information to help you determine which species are best for you to save seed from in your space, choose and build the right support structures for your plants, and learn to include things such as low tunnels, row covers, and other isolation/pest management techniques(They can be one in the same!).
We will also spend time walking through the gardens and discussing mid season cropping for fall harvests, pest managment, weed suppression, trellis options, and feeding your garden. Our irrigation equipement will also be on display for those interested in drip lines and the pros and cons of having a fully irrigated garden.
This months workshop is 3 hrs.
Please remember to bring:
Weather appropriate clothing
Proper footwear for the garden and greenhouses
Notebook and pen
