  • Seed saving: Preserving heritage varieties for the future of agriculture
  • Farmers & gardeners, come spend the day learning all about seed saving from Diane Whealy (Seed Savers Exchange), staff at the USDA Plant Genetic Resources Unit, and skilled fellow farmers and gardeners. Have you ever wanted to save seed but didn't know where to start or are you an experienced seed saver that is curious on how you can improve your own varieties through seed saving? Are you interested in how back yard gardeners become experts and grow for seed companies or link up farmers with rediscovered heirloom varieties? Come expand your knowledge and share with others in this informative all day session. Stay for the whole weekend and attend the complete NOFA-NY winter conference packed with workshops, keynote speeches and great food!
