Seed Saving 101
Wednesday, April 24, 2024
7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Rowayton LIbrary

With the installation of our new seed library, it's important to appreciate the value of seeds—what they are, what they can do, and what would happen to our planet without them.  Advanced Master Gardener Jackie Algon will show us how, as gardeners, we can make a difference by growing plant species that have been growing in our region for millennia, and then collecting, drying, cleaning, and saving seeds from those plants after they have bloomed for future use. It's a formula for continuing the diversity and ecology of not only those plants, but of the insects, birds, and other wildlife that depend upon the seeds for completion of their life cycles.

Jackie Algon is an Advanced Master Gardener who focuses her attention on conservation issues in our area. A founding member of the Pollinator Pathway, she serves on the Board, and enjoys providing education to the public on the importance of native plants, the impact of invasive species and related topics. Jackie served on and chaired the Wilton Conservation Commission, the Wilton Tree Committee and the Wilton Garden Club Conservation Committee, and continues learning about New Best Practices to help our environment both in public locations and at home.
