Local Seed Cleaning Event

For my local garden folk! Do you want to learn more about how to save your seed? Want to learn how to make screens to sort your seed? Check out this workshop!

So you’ve saved your own seeds, now what? At this workshop, attendees will get an overview of cleaning dried seeds with screens, fans, and even a special homemade open source seed cleaner. This workshop will cover threshing, winnowing, screening, labelling, storing your seeds.
