Seed Literacy for Western Ranchers and Sustainable Farmers
Desert Oasis Teaching Gardens at the Albuquerque Academy
A day-long immersion into the modern seed world. You will learn where your seeds are actually grown and how you can find, test, source, grow, harvest, clean, store and even market the best seeds for your operation—that is, those best adapted to your particular environment. This engaging workshop will touch on the history, structure and growth of the modern seed industry, its extreme centralization, and the worldwide grassroots response offering new opportunities (especially for smaller and mid-sized operations). Learn everything from basic terminology to innovative new strategies to transition your operation with seed-focused and sustainable methods.
