Agriculture and gardening, seed saving is the practice of saving seeds or other reproductive material from vegetables, grain, herbs, and flowers for use from year to year. Seeds are generous – one plant can yield over a decade’s worth of seed, saving you incredible amounts of money while offering more varieties to work with in your garden. Learn new skills to be successful at seed saving to ensure desired characteristics are retained.  You can achieve seed saving success! You will learn rules to save seed from your own garden.  You then can share both seed and seed saving knowledge with family and friends.  Cosponsored by Seed Savers Exchange, Instructor Marty Bergland is a lifelong gardener and Master Gardener Emeritus.
