In order to be informed gardeners, we should know where our seeds come from in order to make informed decisions about what we are growing. Terms like “hybrid,” “GM or GMO,” “organic,” “open-pollinated” all have implications for the type of produce we grow and our ability to save seeds.
In this talk, information about the different types of seeds available for home gardeners will be discussed. We’ll also talk about what questions you should ask about your seeds. This information is also important to understand even if you don’t grow your own food, but are purchasing food from mainstream retailers or farmers’ markets.
