Seeds in Hands

Seed Saving in our Garden

  • Thursday, September 22, 2022, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Seed saving is an ancient practice that has found new meaning and urgency as more people have come to appreciate the benefits to the health and well-being that gardening provides. The Otsego County Master Gardeners will be holding a Seed Saving Workshop on Thursday, September 22, 2022, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 123 Lake Street in Cooperstown. Please join us to share and make more for our gardens.

You’ll learn the benefits of seed saving, which plants are best suited to seed saving, and how to harvest and store the seeds you collect. Otsego Master Gardeners will guide participants in the identification and collection of seeds from the gardens at CCE.

Please register in advance at by clicking here or scan the QR code on the left sidebar by Monday, September 19th to ensure sufficient materials. All participants are asked to bring an empty one-gallon plastic jug with a handle. Each participant will be given a plant to take home. A $5 donation is suggested to cover materials. Check-in will begin at 5:15 p.m.
