- Heirloom Squash Seed Saving & Cooking with Squash
July 15, 2017
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ordering seeds from a catalog is a fairly new luxury. For most of history, if you wanted to eat vegetables year after year, it was necessary to save the seeds from the plants in your garden. Some garden varieties are very easy to save and others require more attention. Learn how to hand-pollinate squash so the seeds will “grow true.”
We’ll end the class by cooking with squash blossoms, and everyone will have the chance to enjoy some tasty squash soup!
Instructor Michael Gabler has recently returned to Duluth after 2 years of studying seed saving including at the Seed Saver’s Exchange in Iowa, Irish Seed Savers, and International Seed Saving Gatherings in Mexico.
You will get to taste heirloom squash soup, and you’ll leave with some heirloom squash seeds of your own!
