GREEN DRINKS—SEED SAVING WORKSHOP

Presenter: Sylvia Davatz

Thursday July 25, 2019, 5:30-7:00PM

Forest Center at the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park

(Map to parking for MBRNHP)

(Location of Forest Center)

Since the turn of the 20th century we have lost over 97% of our commercial vegetable varieties. Saving seed from the vegetables in your garden offers the opportunity to reconnect with the richness of endangered history, culture and flavor while preserving beloved varieties. This workshop will cover the basics of saving vegetable seeds, explaining issues of pollination, timing, spacing, annual vs. biennial varieties, isolation and harvesting, cleaning, drying and storing seed. Terms such as open-pollinated, hybrid, “selfer” and “crosser” will be explained, and we’ll talk about the philosophical as well as the practical benefits of preserving our irreplaceable vegetable and grain diversity.

Green Drinks are free and open to everyone.
