SAVING OUR SEEDS
Author: Bevin Cohen
In Saving Our Seeds, seed activist Bevin Cohen takes a deep dive into the how and why of the modern seed-saving movement. A great how-to guide leads the reader step-by-step through saving their seeds from 43 different crops. From adzuki beans to wheat and everything in between. Seed savers of all levels will benefit from Bevin’s easy-to-follow explanations on important techniques such as hand pollination, isolation, vernalization, and even basic flower structure.
A book like this would not be complete without stories that honor the many gardeners, farmers, and seed keepers that have dedicated their lives to stewarding these heritage varieties. Within these pages, the seed keepers share their stories and help the reader understand the importance of saving our seeds.
