Beginning Steps to Seed Sovereignty: Have you always wanted to save seed but felt puzzled about how? Come away from this class with clear info about garden layouts, crop varieties, cross pollination, isolation distances and methods, seed-saving projects and maybe even some seeds! Participants are encouraged to bring questions and seeds to swap.
Paige Paris fell in love with gardening via Wendell Berry’s poetry. After graduating from college, she traveled to Oregon where she received her Permaculture Design Certificate from Cascadia Permaculture Institute and the Confederated Tribes of Grande Ronde. She apprenticed to a seedsaver in Southern Oregon and fell in love with the rhythms of gathering seed. After returning to Appalachia, she has explored several models of homesteading and farming. She particularly enjoys saving seeds with kids!
