Fall is here and the gardening season is almost over - but there's still time to pick up a few new skills in the realm of food preservation, harvesting scion wood, and protecting your biennial plants for winter storage.
Each year in July Seed Savers Exchange plays host to an intimate gathering of leaders in the seed and garden movement at Heritage Farm in Decorah, IA. They come together to discuss issues involving seed and food security as well as the best practices for growing, harvesting, and storing food and seed crops and ways to connect with other seed savers across the nation and world.
Join Seed Savers Exchange Field Manager, Heidi Cook for a workshop on why soil is so important to your garden and methods of soil improvement. We'll kick off the event with a tour of Heritage Farm where you'll learn a bit about the history, mission, and current work of Seed Savers Exchange.
