Seed saving workshop


seedsJoin Melissa Richmond at various Multnomah County library locations throughout August for a free seed saving workshop.

Saving seeds encourages diversity of plant species, preserves a tradition of cultivating heirloom gardens, and allows you to share your garden legacy with your community. Join horticulturist¬†Melissa Richmond, aka “The Garden Lady,” as she teaches this relatively easy and satisfying process. This program will cover topics including edible crops, beneficial garden flowers, proper germination techniques, and how to save seeds using items found in your own kitchen.

The first workshop is August 2 at the Albina Library.
