Seed Saving at Brooklyn Grange
It seems like every day there's a new story breaking on the threats to cultivar biodiversity posed by genetic engineering and resultant widespread outbreaks of plant disease and pests.  We've all heard about the importance of heirloom seeds, but with the world's top ten companies (Monsanto and Dupont being first and second among them) controlling half the market on seeds, it's hard to find regionally adapted seedstock that we can trust!  

Enter (the aptly named) Zach Pickens, Farmer at Tom Colicchio's Riverpark Restaurant and founder of the fiercely independent Rooftop Ready Seeds!  He'll teach us the basics of seed collection to save money on garden seeds and preserve our genetic diversity!  Seed saving is simpler than you'd think for most garden varieties, and Zach will teach us what we need to know to get started.  From tomatoes, to kale, to flowers and herbs, he'll show us some simple seed saving tips and dig into the unique considerations of saving seed in the city.  Make next spring the year you plant a garden of regionally-adapted seedstock that will thrive in your own unique conditions, and beat the industrial seed giants at their own game!

This event will take place rain or shine. Tickets are non-refundable.
