Earlier this year, Seed Savers Exchange (SSE), a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting seed diversity, released a comprehensive book on saving seeds called The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving. The book was created in collaboration with the Organic Seed Alliance. The project was in the works for four years, says SSE Executive Director John Torgrimson, and it brings together the tips and expertise of many veteran seed savers.
This definitive, user-friendly guide features nearly 300 color photographs, along with crop profiles and charts of at-a-glance seed-saving essentials. If you’re serious about saving your own seeds, you’ll want to own this wonderful resource.
