Seed Saving Workshop 2015

Seed Saving is a way to ensure that our food supply is not reliant on a small selection of crop varieties that can lead to vulnerability to disease, pests, and changes in climate.

The practice of seed saving and sharing, seen as a hobby to some, promotes genetic diversity of crops and overall food security. Join Just Food’s Community Gardening Network and participate in a seed saving instructional workshop to learn more about this traditional practice.
