Saving & Sharing Seeds Workshop with Seed Savers Exchange
Thursday, July 31st
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
William Hall Library, 1825 Broad Street, Cranston, RI

As a follow up to the screenings of Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds this month, we’ve invited Seed Savers Exchange to Rhode Island to give a workshop on seed saving and seed sharing.

Tonight's event will be at the William Hall Library, 1825 Broad Street, Cranston, RI

In the days before seed catalogs, harvesting seeds for the next year’s garden was essential. Today, saving and sharing seeds plays a critical role in preserving rare, heirloom varieties and the garden heritage they represent. Join Seed Savers Exchange to discuss the process of saving seeds from garden fruits and vegetables – tomatoes, squash, peppers, melons, beans, and more - and learn how to participate in this backyard preservation. Presented by:  Grant Olson - Public Programs Manager - Seed Savers Exchange. To learn more about Seed Savers Exchange, visit seedsavers.org.
