Seed Saving Workshop

  • Hampton Bays Public Library 52 Ponquogue Avenue Hampton Bays, NY, 11946 United States (map)

The Ecological Culture Initiative will host a Seed Saving Workshop on Monday, November 5th, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the Hampton Bays Public Library, 52 Ponquogue Ave, Hampton Bays, NY 🌱

Join the Rachel Stephens and other ECI staff for a hands-on workshop in Seed Saving. Seed harvesting, processing, and proper storage procedures will be discussed and practiced. Please bring any locally harvested seeds if you have them to donate. Seeds will be used to restock the Good Ground Seed Library.

Establishing a seed library is an important step to develop a network of community based seed savers who create locally adapted plant varieties, increase biodiversity, and mitigate the loss of plant gene integrity due to the genetic engineering of commercially produced seeds and plants.

This is a free workshop. Donations to support the Good Ground Seed Library are gladly accepted.

Let us know you are "Going" on our Facebook event page, and please invite/share with your friends!
