Seed Production

September 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The importance of SEED! Are you a seed saver? Are you a farmer who’s interested in developing your own seed lines or growing seed for commercial sale? Regardless of your level of interest, if you want to know more about seed, this workshop is for YOU!

Join OFS Instructor, Aaron Varadi, and OFS grad, Nathaniel Talbot, for a lively and real conversation about the economics, biology, mechanics and practical considerations for growing vegetable seed, as well as differences between seed and veg production. We’ll be doing lots of hands on threshing, screening and winnowing at both a hand scale as well as with the OFS equipment. The event is geared toward folks interested in doing seed production on a small commercial scale, but totally applicable to the home gardener interested in seed saving.

Free Admission – but RSVP to receive parking directions (email aaron@organicfarmschool.org)
