Seed Saver Workshop, August 7

Seed Saver Workshop
NOFA-NH & UNH Cooperative Extension
Sanborn Mills, Loudon, NH
Wednesday, August 7, 2013
6 – 8 pm

Are you interested in growing seeds or breeding your own vegetables? Join us to learn about the challenges and rewards associated with growing seeds. Learn what steps you can take to become more than just a seed saver, from pollination and plant breeding to wet and dry seed extraction techniques. We will cover the basics of hand pollination, necessary isolation distances, plant roguing, seed harvesting and processing techniques, and proper seed storage. We will discuss seed crops that are easily grown in NH, and those that are not, and how to test your crops germination rate.

Please R.S.V.P. to Ray Conner at
