Seed Saving

On Tuesday Dec 8 from 6-8 I’m teaching Seed Saving at Sustainable Food Center. Register at

Seed saving is one of the most important things that home gardeners do. Industrial agriculture has caused the decline and loss of thousands of varieties of food crops, resulting in smaller gene pools. Home gardeners have the option to grow these rare plants and save the seeds, preserving them for all of humanity.  More on this in future blogs. 

Maybe you caught my latest TWCnews segment about seed storage and saving? Keep them sealed in a conatiner in the fridge! http://www.twcnews.com/tx/austin/lifestyles/2015/12/6/your-home–seed-cataloging.html

Fun at the Austin Herb Society Holiday Bazaar

I had so much fun talking with friends and potential new customers.  There were other really cool booths with jewlery, lots of herbal products like soaps and body care. I was especially excited to connect with a woman who distills her own essential oils from herbs. I’ll be back next year! I gave out lots of info about my favorite plants, a recipe for herbal tummy tea, how to garden with birds and how to prune roses. Hopefully folks will call me up for home consults this winter to prep for spring planting time!
