Introduction to Vegetable Seed Saving


Workshop audio recordings from the 2015 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Presenter: Kathleen Plunkett-Black, Plum Creek Seeds
Saturday 3

Growing your own seeds offers both advantages and challenges. We’ll discuss basic seed-saving principles, and methods for growing, collecting, cleaning, and storing seed. We will cover specific techniques for saving seeds of many commonly-grown garden vegetables, and discuss pollination biology, which plants will and won’t cross, population sizes, and ways to isolate plantings to keep varieties pure.
