Seed Saving 101
Wednesday September 21, 6:30-8:30 pm
@ CCE Tompkins, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca NY
Cost: $5-$10 sliding scale

Learn to save your own flower and vegetable seeds for next year's garden and to 
share with others! In this hands-on class participants will learn the basic 
principles of seed saving. We'll spend some time outside harvesting different 
types of vegetable and flower seeds from the CCE gardens, then we'll clean the 
seeds using different techniques and tools. Learn why fermentation of tomato 
seeds is essential for good germination, and how to dry and store seeds for 
long-term use. We'll also have some heirloom tomatoes for tasting and for 
extracting seeds to save.
