Four Season Winter Gardening Series

On January 14, 1:30 p.m. join Horticulture Educator, Gemini Bhalsod, for Planning your Garden for Seed Saving. This year instead of deciding in the fall that you want to save seeds for planting, plan your garden around it!

She will also discuss harvesting and seed storage.
