MN SEED Project
The MN SEED Project was created in 2020 to encourage growers to save seeds. In 2021 our project focused on native plants and preserving regionally adapted seeds while creating a local seed economy and community of practice around seed saving skills. Courtney will discuss seed-saving basics you can apply to your garden and share the results of the 2021 project.
About the presenter: When she was a toddler, Courtney Tchida‘s family often found her munching on peas in the garden. It seems she was destined for a career in growing food! With a degree in Environmental Horticulture, a master’s in Agricultural Education, and a certificate in Permaculture Design, Courtney loves teaching others how to grow sustainably and have success (and fun!) in the garden. Her favorite plant? It’s a tie between white Dutch clover (which she calls “magic”) and giant ground cherries (because they taste like passion fruit).
