TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Farmers and home gardeners know saving seeds sounds easy, but saving them properly could be vital to crops.
Learn the basics of seed harvesting and storage (two traditional practices that both save money and preserve species of plants) at this week's Savings Seeds Program at the Tippecanoe County Public Library.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, you can join local farmer Linda Swihart in the McAllister Meeting Room at the downtown branch of the library.
Swihart is a 36-year county resident, lifelong gardener and an employee of Purdue's Radiological and Environmental Management (REM) Department.
Not only does Swihart possess knowledge about saving seeds, but in the past 7 years she has begun raising a laying flock of chickens and producing chickens for meat. She also raises ducks, goats and pigs.
For more on "Saving Seeds" and upcoming How Does Your Garden Grow programs, you can stop by any branch of the library, call 765-429-0113 or visit the library's website.
