Workshop Level: Intermediate
Matthew Goldfarb and Petra Page-Mann are seed farmers and owners of Fruition Seeds.

Workshop Description

Ever wonder how to create your own new varieties of vegetables? Or do you have a hybrid you really want to figure out how to save seed from? Are you interested in saving seed from biennials like beets, chard, carrots, kale, cabbage? Come learn about how you can start breeding your own vegetables and saving those hard to figure out biennials. We will teach the same methods humans have been using for 14,000 years to create the wondrous array of food we have today. If you have a working knowledge of seed saving, you will get the most out of this class, but all are welcome to be inspired.
