About the Program
Explore diversity, genetic selection and food security in this introduction to seed saving.  We will go over different types of flowers, botanical terms, how plants produce seeds and selection of varieties.  We will learn how to save seeds from tomatoes, lettuce, peas and squash in hands-on demos for some of these seed types depending on the season.  We will explore the diversity in food plants by human selection on why it might be important to save local varieties of seeds for food security.
