Event Details

Learn how to save your seeds from this summer's bounty! North Carolina's Tomato Man, Craig Lehoullier, is back, and in this wide ranging, fun workshop, he will focus on seeds - where to purchase, what to watch for, and for tomatoes, how to save and store for many years of use.

Craig will include a bit of history to highlight why we gardeners are so fortunate today, and a peek at his many 2023 garden projects. Learn how fun it is to save seeds, a practice that is as old as the dawn of agriculture!
