Seed Saving in a Time of Climate Crisis – a How-To Class

Wednesday | July 24, 2019 | 7:00 pm — 8:30 pm

Richmond Public Library, Community Room | 325 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond, CA 94804

Learn how to save seeds from common vegetables such as beans, peas, lettuce, tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers. 94% of commercial varieties that were available 100 years ago are gone and the biodiversity that we have left will be stewarded by community members like you. Explore how seed saving can enrich your life, save you money, and preserve biodiversity. Help save heirlooms of the past and breed heirlooms of the future.

Taught by Rebecca Newburn, Co-Founder of the Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library. Her “create a library” model has helped hundreds of seed libraries open around the world. She has been a leader in the National Save Seed Sharing Campaign that advocates for our right to share seeds.
