This is an invitation to attend a Seed Starting and Seed Saving workshop at the Spooner Ag Research Station on Tuesday March 31 from 6-8:30 pm
The discussion will focus on a review of general botany (flower parts), pollinations/cross pollination, seed saving (including proper sanitation and seed borne diseases) and seed starting techniques.
MGV Russ Parker will be leading the discussion and promises to enlighten us with lots of thought provoking ideas and practical concepts.
This session will include a short presentation and lots of hands-on activities and demonstrations! Everyone will be asked to help/assist in seed planting of our tomatoes for the North Country Master Gardener Plant Sale. Everyone will also have an opportunity to take home supplies and seeds to start their own seeds.
If people want to bring seeds to exchange you are encouraged to do that as well.
This will be a great hands-on learning session and I encourage you all to attend!!
Space is limited to 30 people.
Please RSVP to this email by Monday March 30.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing on Tuesday at 6 pm.
