Please RSVP by clicking HERE so we know how to best handle parking and table set ups. We’ll do our best to have adequate tables and chairs but if you have a couple of lawn chairs, or a nice blanket for old-school picnicking, please think about bringing such things. The RSVP is also helpful so we can send additional info/directions to you as the event gets closer.

Getting Started With Seed Production
Join OFS Instructor, Aaron Varadi, and OFS grad, Nathaniel Talbot, from 5-8pm on September 14, for a lively and real conversation about the economics, biology, mechanics and practical considerations for growing vegetable seed, as well as differences between seed and veg production. We'll be doing lots of hands on threshing, screening and winnowing at both a hand scale as well as with the OFS equipment. The event is geared toward folks interested in doing seed production on a small commercial scale, but totally applicable to the home gardener interested in seed saving.
Free Admission - but RSVP to receive parking directions (email firstname.lastname@example.org)
