With the fall harvest comes an interest in saving seeds for next spring's garden.  But have you ever wanted to learn more?

A special event on Monday, October 6 at the Duluth Public Library will help.

This free educational seed saving program for gardners will happen from 5:30 to 7:30 PM in the Gold Room at the library.

In  the days before seed catalogs, harvesting seeds was essential.  Today, saving and sharing seeds play a critical role in preserving rare heirloom varieties.  Grant Olson - from the Seed Savers Exchange Program in Iowa - will talk about the process of saving seeds from garden foods like tomatoes, squash, peppers, beans, and more.  He'll also share information and show people how to participate in this backyard preservation.
