Proceeds go to campaigning for the seed bill.
Join us for a talk on how to start peas from seed; how to grow and harvest peas to eat; and how to save seeds for the next season.
We will cover the basics of seed saving, including different types of seeds and which ones can be saved. And we’ll have a special giveaway for attendees to take home and grow: the Heirloom Green Arrow Pea seed, the 2016 Silicon Valley Grows! One Seed, One Community selection. If you are successful growing them, save some seed for next season and to share. Saving and sharing Heirloom seeds will keep these varieties in our gardens and generate local seeds. Local food begins with local seeds.
All ages welcome. Seeds are available at libraries and talks as long as supplies last starting mid January 2016.. Seeds donated by the Libraries, Friends & the Seed Savers Exchange http://www.seedsavers.org/
