About The Event
As more and more people turn to growing their own food, seed companies have been having trouble keeping up with demand and many seed racks have been depleted in stores. Do you want to learn how to save your own seeds and be part of local food and seed security?
Join Rogue Farm Corps as we welcome Portland OR based permaculture teacher Marisha Auerbach (Permaculture Rising) for an online seed saving workshop. Marisha will help you understand the basics of seed saving, pollination, and selection. She will also talk about how to clean your seeds, and how to store your seeds for use in later years. From flower seeds to vegetables seeds, our goal is to empower you with the knowledge of how to collect and store your delicious and beautiful plants from this year to grow out in future generations. Marisha Auerbach has decades of experience in saving seeds to catalyze your home collection and the beginning of a local seed library.
This workshop will happen virtually via the Zoom platform. Questions will be taken via the chat box feature at dedicated intervals throughout the presentation, as well as a longer Q&A session at the end. A PDF copy of Marisha's slide presentation will be sent to participants to keep as a reference. A video recording of the workshop will also be made available to participants after the workshop.
Scholarships available: please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a scholarship.
