Seed Saving with Five Valleys Seed Library

Seed Saving with Five Valleys Seed Library

Join Five Valleys Seed Library volunteer Yvonne Sorovacu for a Zoom workshop geared towards gardeners who are curious about seed saving, but don’t know where to start. Home gardeners will learn how seed saving works, why seed saving techniques vary for different plants, and what info we need to know in order to get the seeds we want.

 

Preview Yvonne’s Seed Saving Handout (pdf)

 

In this workshop we’ll discuss techniques for making sure the seed you save will grow the plant you intended to grow, and you’ll get tips on which are the easiest and best plants to save seed from, as well as how to harvest, process, and store your seeds. There will be time for questions and a handout with both workshop notes and seed-saving resources. This program will be held online, and prior registration is required.

Presenter Bio: Yvonne Sorovacu is a science nerd who gardens. Every year she is mesmerized by the evolutionary history, cultural history and biological magic of tiny seeds that turn into bountiful gardens. She’s been organically gardening vegetables and flowers for over 15 years in her home garden, and at one of the Garden City Harvest community plots. Her degrees in biology and environmental studies, along with her time working in science-based educational programs at a botanical garden and science museum have only enhanced her enthusiasm and curiosity for plants and seed saving. She first became excited about seed saving while living in Virginia. The contents of her pockets after going on summer or fall walks has never been the same since.
