Event details

How does your garden grow? With seeds to share! Learn the basics of flower seed saving. Learn about a few easy-to-grow flowers and get to know their growth habits, pollinators and uses. Then spend some time harvesting and sorting seeds to save and plant in your garden next spring.

While sorting, chat about all things gardening and sip the beverage of your choice (BYOB; beer and wine only, please, for alcoholic beverages). Participants will leave with seeds from each flower variety, storage envelopes and growing information. Any extra seeds will be donated the Seed Library at Crete Public Library.
