The Student Farm Club will be hosting this presentation on Thursday, April 8 from 6-7 p.m. EDT. Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to attend to learn about the skill and benefits of seed saving.

Marc Kepler will lead the event and talk about his experiences and advice for saving seeds. Kepler has been gardening for many years, and he is particularly interested in plant genetics. Throughout his gardening years, Kepler has learned which seeds to save and which he would prefer to purchase, and he will be sharing his insight at this event.

Seed saving offers many benefits to gardeners. It saves them money every year so that they do not have to buy all their seeds, ensures that they will be able to replant their favorite varieties, helps maintain genetic diversity within plants and more. In this presentation, we will explore the world of seed saving and how participants can be a part of it.

The “Saving Your Garden’s Seeds: Tips for Saving and Why It Matters” event will be held via Zoom on Thursday, April 8, 2021 from 6-7 pm EDT.  Register here.
