Seed Saving Days

As fall arrives, it’s harvest time and that means seed harvesting. Slow Food is part of a collaborative effort among several local organizations who have together formed the Piscataqua Seed Project.  Together we are growing seed and creating a resource for Seacoast area gardeners.

We will meet up at the Heirloom Harvest Project trial gardens to harvest produce and seed from this year’s trial varieties. Learn seed saving techniques and take home some seed for next year!
