LAKEPORT, Calif. – The University of California Master Gardeners of Lake County will host a workshop called “Seed Saving for the Home Vegetable Gardener” on Saturday, Nov. 1.
The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Lake County Agricultural Center, 883 Lakeport Blvd. in Lakeport, a wheelchair-accessible facility.
Whether you are motivated by the rising prices of heirloom vegetable seeds, are into breeding your own locally-adapted cultivars or are worried about whether your favorite variety of vegetable will be available for purchase in the years to come, saving your own seeds is a good idea for many reasons.
This workshop will introduce you to how to save seeds, which seeds are realistically worth saving for home vegetable gardeners of varying skills and determination, and the advantages to coordinating efforts with others.
You also may have the opportunity to network with like-minded gardeners to possibly team up with to make your seed saving efforts more practical and complete.
Preregistration is required for this workshop as space is limited.
A $5 materials fee is requested.
To register for the workshop, or for more information, contact the University of California Cooperative Extension at 707-263-6838 or email [email protected] .
