Here are a couple of events recommended by Greenthumb:

Planning Your Garden for Seed Saving – Monday, June 27

It is with great pleasure that we announce a lecture and discussion with Seed Savers Exchange: “Planning Your Garden for Seed Saving” presented by GreenThumb, Horticultural Society of New York and New York Restoration Project. We hope that you will help us reach the New York City urban agriculture community by sharing this invitation with your colleagues as well as the communities that you work with.

Seed Savers Exchange curator Shanyn Siegel will lead an informative presentation and discussion on the seed saving movement and guide the audience through the basic knowledge that is needed to begin saving your own seeds. Light refreshments will be served.

This event will be held on Monday, June 27, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Horticultural Society of New York.

Please RSVP to events@nyrp.org by June 24 to reserve your seat. We look forward to seeing you there!
