SEED SAVING WORKSHOP- THURSDAY AUGUST 22ND @ 6 PM
Cheri from Seeds of Creation is coming to BUPL to give a beginners workshop on how to save seeds!
Seed saving refers to the practice of saving various types of reproductive material and seeds from plants such as flowers, herbs, grains, vegetables, and tubers for future use.
Farmers have been saving seeds for the past 12,000 years! Some benefits to this tradition include: engaging in the cycle of life, preserving heirloom varieties, encouraging genetic diversity, and saving money.
Please join us, and Cheri, and learn a new skill! The workshop is free and open to all. Click here
