Seed Saving Workshop

Tis the season for seed saving! I will be updating tips on how to collect and save your seeds over the next month ... Here's a photo of a seed saving workshop I recently hosted at the Lift Lock Community Garden. I am showing folks how to harvest arugula seeds. .... I am always too busy to take photos, so I am glad that someone did!
