Workshop: “Seed Saving Basics”
September 17 @ 10:00 am
Join Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Betsy Samuelson for a Caring for the Land Workshop Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. at the BHHT Farm.
Seed saving invites abundance into our homes and communities. This workshop provides an introduction to saving seed in your backyard garden. Specifically, the workshop will entail a basic overview that applies to most herbs, vegetables and flowers. A handful of easy favorites will be reviewed in detail. Demonstrations will include seed cleaning and saving tomato seeds.
Betsy became fascinated with seed saving in 2010, learning as she integrated growing crops seed to seed while she was working as an organic farm production manager. With the goal of increasing community resilience and supporting community seed sharing activities, Betsy helped launch Common Soil Seed Library, the Community Seed Network, helped draft and lobbied to amend the Nebraska Seed Law and the Recommended Uniform State Seed Law to allow noncommercial seed sharing. Currently, Betsy and her family reside in Monroe, where they own and operate Seed & Soil, which offers cannabis seeds and plants to anyone 21 and over, slowly integrating more herbs, flowers, and vegetables into the nursery and seed offerings.
