Seed Saving Basics at Mosswood Community Garden


Posted on 14th October 2011 by mat in Events |Seeds

Mat Rogers is a  Mosswood Community Garden volunteer and the director of Agrariana, who’s Backyard Seed Bank project works with local gardeners to grow and save quality seed for local seed banks as part of the East Bay Seed Hub. He will give a free talk on ‘Seed Saving Basics’ Saturday, Oct 15 at 10 am in the Mosswood Community Garden near the intersection of MacArthur Blvd. and Webster St. in Oakland.

Mat will talk about why people save seeds, how plants reproduce, and three families of very easy seeds to save — beans and peas, tomatoes, and lettuce.  The talk will last about an hour and include seed processing demos so you’ll be ready to save seed at home and plan your garden for seed saving next year.  For those wishing more in-depth discussion, he’ll continue after the main talk to have a roundtable discussion about more advanced seed saving while we do some seed processing.
