Seed-saving workshop set

University of Illinois DeKalb County Extension presents a workshop on seed saving and exchange from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Extension office, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore, in the DeKalb County Center for Agriculture.

Seed saving is the practice of saving seeds from vegetables, grain, herbs, and flowers for use from year to year in your garden. This practice has a long history and has recently started to regain popularity among gardeners. It takes a bit of knowledge and proper planning in order to be successful with seed saving, and now is the perfect time to start saving seeds from your vegetable garden.

Candice Miller, U of I Extension horticulture educator, will talk about the history, methods, and planning techniques for saving seeds from your garden. Gardeners are welcomed and encouraged to bring any seeds they may have saved previously to participate in a seed exchange. Bring a packet of seeds and go home with a different packet of seeds to try. Participation is purely voluntary.

Cost is $5 per person. Register by phone at 815-758-8194, or online at web.extension.illinois.edu/bdo.
