Tilth Alliance Live Virtual Class: Intro to Seed Saving

Thursday, September 24, 6pm-7:30pm via Zoom; Hosted by Tilth Alliance

Do you have a favorite tomato or lettuce variety that you grow every year? Learn how easy it is to save seeds from your favorite plants, with enough seed left over to share with others. Explore the reproduction details of common crops, make a plan to save for next season, and then have fun threshing and winnowing seeds.

In this class you will learn:

  • The benefits of saving your own seeds
  • How plants are pollinated
  • Cross-pollination issues
  • Easy crops for seed saving
  • Seed processing and storage
  • Seed viability testing

This virtual class will feature a live, interactive lecture with slide show, a video tour of the garden, and time for questions and answers with the instructor. A detailed outline with recommended resources will also be provided. We will be using Zoom for this class, which you can use on your computer or phone.

Tilth Alliance strives to educate everyone, regardless of their financial means. All classes include a limited number of reduced price tickets for those with financial need.
