Seed Saving 101
Wednesday September 21, 6:30-8:30 pm
CCE Tompkins, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca
Cost: $5-$10 sliding scale

Learn to save your own flower and vegetable seeds for next year's garden and to share with others! In this hands-on class participants will learn the basic principles of seed saving. We'll spend some time outside harvesting different types of vegetable and flower seeds from the CCE gardens, then we'll clean the seeds using different techniques and tools. Learn why fermentation of tomato seeds is essential for good germination, and how to dry and store seeds for long-term use. We'll also have some heirloom tomatoes for tasting and for extracting seeds to save.
