Saving, Cleaning & Storing Seeds

Join us to learn the basics of seed saving in this hands-on workshop. We will be reviewing how to save seeds from various flowers, herbs and vegetable crops, learn how to properly clean seeds and store seeds by assisting us in cleaning seeds harvested from our Urban Seed Saving Gardens located in community gardens across the region. 

Participants will leave with an understanding of how to save seeds, why it is important and some basic skills, as well as a package of seeds to get them inspired to grow and save seeds next season!  

Urban Seed Saving Gardens

We’re growing  a diversity of heirloom crops in five Urban Seed Saving community garden plots across the region in order to promote the growth of unique heirloom crops in diverse spaces, provide ingredients for our cooking programs, provide an opportunity to share skills and stories, and increase the quantity & quality of locally grown seeds available in our community.
