If you’re interested in seed saving, understanding some basic concepts before you get started will make the process easier. Learn the difference between open-pollinated and hybrid seed and gain understanding of plant taxonomy, reproductive structures and pollination methods. Seed Savers Exchange (SSE) staff will also touch on the isolation techniques used at Heritage Farm, the 890-acre home of SSE. Seed Savers Exchange is a nonprofit, member-supported organization that saves and shares the heirloom seeds of our garden heritage, forming a living legacy that can be passed down through generations.
Jenna Sicuranza has been at Seed Savers Exchange (SSE) since January 2010, serving first as Assistant Curator. With an M.S. in Plant Science from the University of Rhode Island, she enjoys exploring her interests in organic food production and plant collections management.
