Seeds: Preparing your Spring & Summer Garden
Join Farmer Henry for an in depth teaching workshop on preparing your spring and summer garden and it all starts with seeds.
This workshop includes basic seed concepts including timing of planting, ideal population sizes, preventing cross-pollination, selecting for improved varieties, seed maturation and harvest, and seed cleaning techniques. Henry teaches participants how to improve vegetable quality through careful seed selection and improvement. Participants also learn how to select for reproductive fitness, yield, disease resistance, and improved performance under adverse conditions. Participants gain knowledge in seed growing basics. Other topics of instruction include: the biology of seed production, seed harvesting and cleaning, and choosing appropriate seed crops for your system and climate.
Henry is a charismatic character and a lot of fun to learn from. We know you’ll enjoy your time spent with him and the knowledge he has to share with you. Please stay for lunch in our café after your workshop. We have a wonderful selection of ready-to-go sandwiches and salads, many made with vegetables from our farm!
This workshop is $15 and is about 2 hours, 10am - 12pm.
