Grow Your Own Produce: Seedsaving & the Winter Garden

In August, it is time to save seeds. The weather has been dry and many plants are ripening their seed. This workshop will cover the basics of saving seed and offer you the opportunity to gather some hands-on experience. August is a key month to get many starts in the ground for harvest in the winter and early spring. This class will highlight what is happening in the garden in August, how to preserve your harvest, and prepare for the coming month.

This class is in Marisha's garden at 4816 Southeast 50th Avenue in Portland.
