We’re thrilled to announce that a new text for seed savers will be available this spring — in time for the growing season! — thanks to a collaboration between Seed Savers Exchange and Organic Seed Alliance. Together we’ve written and edited The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving, which is filled with advice for both gardeners and the more seasoned horticulturist on saving seed from your favorite open-pollinated plants. The book is beautiful, combining stunning photographs with clear instructions on how to save seed from more than a dozen crop types. Our hope is that the book makes seed saving accessible to everyone, while helping readers develop a deeper understanding of the importance of practicing this important act as a way to conserve and improve the genetic diversity of our seed heritage.
Here’s an interview about the book with the executive director of Seed Savers Exchange. You can order The Seed Garden here (ships spring of 2015).
