Urban Seed Saving – Oct 8

sunflowerseedharvestDo you want to join the efforts to conserve heirloom vegetable seeds?  Do you want to create your own vegetable varieties?

This hands-on workshop covers plant reproduction for the major vegetable plant families, cross-pollination, preserving varietal purity, seed storage, and cleaning seed … and how to maximize the benefits of our urban conditions to get the very best seeds.

Presenters include David King (Seed Library of Los Angeles, UCLA Extension, and The Learning Garden), Azita Jolei (Seed Library of Los Angeles and Homegrown Gardens), and Joanne Poyourow (Environmental Change-Makers, Community Garden at Holy Nativity, and Cityscape Seeds).

Plus … for lunch you can bake your own pizza in the wood-fired Westchester Community Oven (bring pizza dough and toppings to share potluck-style) or bring a salad to share.
