Location: HM 152
Date: Sun, March 25
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Growing crops for their seeds is an ancient practice at the heart of food justice and sustainable gardening and farming. Learn how to grow and process seed crops to save money, develop locally adapted varieties, and maintain biodiversity. Poughkeepsie Farm Project’s education team will show you how to save seeds whether you are growing on a small or large scale. They will also touch on how they involve local teens in seed saving through their Seeds of the Food System project. Participants will leave with a resource guide that explains seed saving in more depth and provides lists of recommended books and websites for further reading.
