On Saturday, Oct.13, from 1 to 3 pm, the FARM Institute in Katama is holding a Seed Saving Party. According to a press release, farmers, gardeners, seed savers, and plant lovers are invited to celebrate the season. Bring your favorite locally grown, open-pollinated (non-hybrid) plant material to save seed from: Overripe vegetables, dried corn and bean pods, lettuce stalks, and herb and flower seed pods.

All are welcome, and for those new to seed saving, the FARM Institute will provide plant material to work with. Enjoy an afternoon in the garden, learn about seed-saving techniques, and help the institute restock its seed library cabinet. This event is free and open to the public.
