Seed Saving Workshop

We are grateful to have so many knowledgeable gardeners and homesteaders in our midst.  Today's workshop, Seed Saving, led by Bob Wildfong of Seeds of Diversity, was back for the third time by popular demand.  Bob is a wealth of information on this subject, and we had nearly 30 eager people who came out, on a perfect fall day when the garden seeds were bursting in the late warm sun, who learned about saving seeds for next year's planting.  It seems like growing food is one of the most vital and basic skills we can have, and saving seeds goes hand-in-hand with growing.  We are so fortunate to keep meeting so many new people, including a whole group of organic farm interns from Ignatius Farm  (Guelph) today.  The interns are finishing up their season with the CRAFT program, Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training.
