Last week we held our last potluck of 2012 and had Richard Bernard (from Pojoaque Pueblo Farmers Market, Greenhouse and Farm as well as Seeds of Change) to discuss what we needed to do in Santa Fe to increase seed saving. Pablo Navrot from our board presented a TEDx talk titled, Restoring Agricultural Diversity Through Backyard Seed Saving, on Saturday to start people thinking about how they can save seeds in their home gardens. We have started this discussion and are planning more classes and discussions in 2013.
Let us know your feedback. What do you want to learn? Is there a type of seed that you want to save? Have you created any new varieties in your garden?
Here are some 2013 Events for Seed Saving
Bring any seeds to share with others in a packet from the store or that you saved. You can also bring envelopes or small baggies and a marking pen. We will have a seed saving class to show people how to label seeds with year, seed type and other information.
