Now is a great time get ready to save cool season veggie seeds from your garden to replant next year. Check out Darebin Council’s new Seed Saving Guide for home gardeners of all experience levels. This booklet contains tips and tricks for successfully selecting, collecting, drying and storing seeds.
By saving and sharing seeds you can help increase seed diversity, preserve heirloom varieties, develop seed that is locally adapted to our local conditions and strengthen our community’s resilience to climate change.
When you save seeds from your garden, you’ll probably end up with more seed than you could ever dream of planting. Why not donate your surplus seeds to a local seed library?
