  • Whether growing food or flowers, in a backyard raised bed or on acres of farmland, understanding the fundamentals of seed saving, harvesting, and sharing will lead you to a successful garden plan. The process of saving seeds has been practiced for years and the benefits are well known for agriculture biodiversity and a healthy, sustainable food supply. 

    Join us on March 5th to learn about seed saving techniques and best practices, and get information and resources on growing your 2024 garden.

    We’ll also demystify the labels on your seed packets. Organic, hybrid and open pollinated seed will be explained, and you’ll learn how to choose what’s best. There will be time after the presentation for Q&A with your farm and gardening questions. 

    The evening begins with the launch of the eighth annual Sammamish Valley Alliance Seed Swap, which runs through March 30th. Come early at 6:30 p.m. or stay afterward to visit the seed table outside the 21 Acres Farm Market entrance. Bring seeds to share, if you can.

    This program is free and open to the public. Registration in advance on Eventbrite is encouraged, but not required.
