Join us for a last workshop in the Garden Like a Farmer series to deepen your relationship with seeds. Where do your seeds come from? What seeds would you like to pass on to the next generation of growers? We will reflect on the beauty and abundance of seeds as we learn tips and techniques for seed saving in a small-scale garden. Learn about self-sowing annuals like calendula, culinary herb seeds like coriander, fermenting mucilaginous tomato seeds, and much more! We encourage attendees to bring seeds you may have already saved and are ready to swap with other growers.

This workshop is facilitated by Carolina Lukac, Garden Education Manager with the Vermont Garden Network. Carolina has been growing food for the past 15 years, for a decade on urban rooftops in Mexico City and now in community-based gardens in Vermont. In addition to growing vegetables, she aspires to grow many medicinal plants to make herbal remedies, dye plants to keep busy with natural dye crafts over the winter, and enough cutting flowers to fill her house with fresh bouquets all season long.
