An Introduction to Seed Saving

Kellee Matsushita of the UCSC Farm & Garden, leads this workshop to explore the foundational concepts of seed saving: which crops to choose, how to crop plan for seed production, and how botany impacts mating systems for various crops/species. We may be able to clean and process a few seed crops (weather dependent ). We will also discuss how we can participate in the reformation of local seed sheds.
