A great workshop is scheduled for Thursday Aug 10 at UC Davis. It's a busy time of year, but it could be a great time to improve your skills to benefit this summer's seed saving.
ORGANIC BREEDING AND SEED INTENSIVE
Join Jared Zystro of Organic Seed Alliance, and Julie Dawson and Bill Tracy of University of Wisconsin-Madison, to learn how to develop new varieties and produce commercial quality seed. Learn basic principles to evaluate, develop, improve, and maintain both cross-pollinated and self-pollinated plant varieties for your farm. The training will also include a brief overview of seed biology, how to manage population size and isolation distances and seed production, harvesting, cleaning, and storage best practices.
Number of participants is limited.
