Seed saving is a powerful and simple act that can launch you into a world of heirloom seed stories, varietal adaptation, seed swaps, seed preservation, and increased biodiversity. Chris Smith will offer a glimpse into the joys of seed saving and leave you with some practical knowledge and follow up resources to start (or continue) your seed saving journey.
