With the huge loss of vegetable and flower varieties over the past 100 years and continuing decrease in genetic diversity, gardeners and farmers are finding that saving and swapping seed is a rewarding and very important part of growing plants. Experts from the Long Island Seed Consortium who organize the annual Long Island Seed Swap will lead you through the techniques of preserving variety purity by isolation and hand-pollination as well as seed harvesting, seed cleaning, storage and finally; keeping a variety alive by sharing.
You be bringing home seeds that we have worked with during the class.
