Growing Your Farm by Saving Your Seeds; Basic Breeding for Success

Wednesday, November 28, 11:15 AM - 12:15 AM   

This workshop will focus on how the simple act of saving your seeds can increase yields, enhance product offerings and add value to any small farm operation. Through selection and basic breeding techniques, participants will also learn to help their crops adapt to changes in climate, pest pressures and disease. As the demand for local food increases, the need for locally adapted seed is more prevalent now than ever before. Learn to incorporate the ancient art of seed saving into your daily routine and help your small farm grow to meet this need head-on.
