Special Workshop: How to Save Seeds
On Saturday, August 24th, LUREC in Bull Valley, Illinois is offering a special workshop: “How to Save Seeds and Community Exchange.” Seed saving can make a garden self-sufficient and is a great way to pick the preferred vegetables and replant the seeds the following year. Participants will gain hands-on experience with seed selection, collection, cleaning, and storing. They will also have the opportunity to trade seeds with local community members. Admission is $15, and the workshop is from 1-3 p.m.
For more information on the challenge course, summer workshops, and updates on the student farm, please visit LUC.edu/retreatcampus or blogs.luc.edu/farm.
