Seed to Seed; Closing the Gap in Sustainable Farming

Wednesday, November 28, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM   

Saving seeds is an essential practice for maintaining a sustainable 'closed circuit' farm operation. Local food is only as local as the seed supply. Seeds are just as vital as healthy soil, clean water and market access. Regionally adapted and locally grown seeds are paramount to a secure food system. This presentation explores the benefits and challenges of incorporating seed saving into a small organic farm operation.
