Seed-saving has been popping up in conversations in our area. Enough so that the Coalition of Community Gardens gathered some of the local seed savers to talk about what we can do, what we need to learn, and how we can spread the word.
Will Stone with the UF/IFAS Extension Hillsborough County shared the following information with us:
Seed Saving – Gardening Solutions – University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (ufl.edu)
Seed Saving Basics – UF/IFAS Extension Orange County (ufl.edu)
Saving Seeds Dos and Don’ts — UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County (ufl.edu)
And, to celebrate the beginning of Community Gardens month, Seminole Heights Community Garden is hosting the first of 3 (and hopefully more!) seed and seedling swaps on April 1st. Join us!
