789: Wild Flower Seed Chat.
A chat with an expert on seeds.
In This Seed Chat:
This is the December 2023 Seed Chat. Who doesn’t love wildflowers? Contrary to popular belief, you don’t toss wildflowers on your land and hope that they grow. Like most crops, they need special tending to get them started. If you’re really daring, you might mimic the patterns of the plants whose seeds you want to sprout. But keep in mind, wild plants put out thousands of seeds because so many of them don’t make it. They’re looking for the odds to be in their favor. Join Bill & Greg as they dive into this seedy topic.
At least ten times a year we have a live Seed Saving Class with Bill McDorman, the former Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance, Ketchum, Idaho. He got his start in the bio-regional seed movement while in college in 1979 when he helped start Garden City Seeds. In 1984, Bill started Seeds Trust/High Altitude Gardens, a mail order seed company he ran successfully until it sold in 2013.
Come join us for the next live class, or catch up on our previous classes through our podcast episodes. Either way you will expand your seed knowledge and gain new perspectives on your food system.
Register anytime for the next event.
