Ever wonder what gardeners did before there were packaged seeds? Would you like to have control over your food supply from the start, save money on seeds or maintain your grandmother’s favorite tomato variety? In this evening class, we will learn some of the time honored ways of saving seeds for you garden. We will demonstrate how to save tomato seeds and other vegetables and, also, clean some California native flowers. Participants will leave with samples of several tomato seed varieties and instructions for saving their own seeds. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR By day, Sharon Horgan is a lab rat at California State University, East Bay, but on weekends and evenings she can be found puttering around her small but productive garden. She grows California natives in the front yard and heirloom veggies in the back. She got started with California natives when she planted a garden at her son's elementary school and had to solve problems such as drought, deer, and how to attract butterflies so that the children could study an environmental-based curriculum. And of course, in a short time it was obvious that California native plants were the answer to most of the problems in the flower gardens and everyone loved the result.
