This workshop will review the elements of ecology that are fundamental to healthy land management—be it the home garden, urban farm, or other landscape—in a sustainable way. Seed-saving is one of the most important of all of the sustainable gardening practices. During this workshop you will learn the mechanics of saving seeds and the social and political importance of doing so. We’ll review the basics of botany, and plant and pollinator relationships will be discussed. Registrants will propagate plants by divisions and cuttings and take home the results of this exercise.
