Join Casey O'Leary from Snake River Seed Cooperative to learn about harvesting and saving seeds.
Did you save any seeds from your garden last year? Bring your seeds and bring a friend! We'll be swapping seeds on Saturday, February 17th.
This year we have a special guest: Thumbs Heath! He has been stewarding and breeding seeds in and around the Gospel Hump Wilderness in central Idaho for over 30 years. He was a PhD candidate in plant breeding at UC Davis when he made the decision to step away from the often money-driven modern plant breeding apparatus and instead focus his breeding efforts for the public good. He specializes in garlic, amaranth, and heritage grains, as well as in purple crop varieties.
11am: Swap opens for people who have seeds to share.
12:30pm: Swap opens for everybody.
12:30pm - 1:30pm: Seed saving 101 class (You don't have to bring seeds to attend this class! Everyone is welcome!)
