On August 26, 2012, Comstock, Ferre and Company is hosting a seed saving workshop. A joint project presented by CT NOFA in conjunction with Comstock, Ferre and Co., the workshop will run from 1:00 P.M. through 4:00 P.M. featuring several sessions. The first session will cover the basics of seed saving-hybrid vs. open pollinated, what is an heirloom, annual vs. biennial, self fertile vs. needing to cross pollinate, different ways of pollination (insect, wind, other). It will also cover easy seed to save, such as tomatoes, peppers, and legumes. The second session will focus on techniques for crops that need isolation, and the third on growing seed commercially. The cost for the workshop is $30 for members, $40 for non-members. There is a scholarship fund available for beginning farmers, or those with less than ten years experience. For scholarship information or to register, contact Kristiane at 203-888-5146 or http://ctnofa.org/events/OnFarmWorkshops/2012_seed_saving_workshop.html, or contact Comstock Ferre at 640-571-6590, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
