Oct. 18, 2014, 9:00-9:30AM Deep Roots Radio – savings seeds starting right now

What: Deep Roots Radio Interview with Koby Jeschkeit-Hagen, master seed saver, teacher, and researcher
When: Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014, 9:00-9:30AM Central Time
Where: WPCA Radio, 93.1FM in and around Amery, WI, and streamed on www.wpcaradio.org
Why: Gardeners and farmers started savings seeds eons ago. It’s only been recently that we’ve all come to depend on the dwindling selection of vegetable, fruit and grain seed selections available from large-scale seed houses. You can reclaim valuable genetic diversity, flavors and growing habits by beginning to save your own seeds. And it’s not too late to start. Your fall garden may still offer several opportunities to gather and store seeds for next growing season.
But how to start? Jeschkeit-Hagen shares some tips in this interview. She’s also leading a class – An Introduction to Seeds Savings – on October 23rd. The introductory class is sponsored by the Hungry Turtle Learning Center, in Amery, Wisconsin, and the cost is just $10. You still have time to register!
For more information about seed saving, visit the Seed Savers Exchange and the Seed Sages sites. Jeschkeit-Hagen also suggests searching for “seed saving” on the Internet for the many other websites, information and videos available.
Hope you’ll tune in!
