Seed Saving

Seed Saving can be a fun hobby, a revolutionary act, or a career. It may be tempting to order all of your seeds from a shiny catalogue, but how will they grow here in Revelstoke? By saving locally grown seeds you are selecting for seeds that grow and thrive in this location with its seasons, soil, sunlight, wind and water conditions. They are also free of laboratory manipulation and toxic coatings and treatments. Keep it wild! Keep it free! Your home grown seeds are a welcome addition to our Seed Library.

Check out all the seed saving techniques that our friends over at Stellar Seeds in Kaslo, BC have filmed. These videos will show you the basics of seed saving popular vegetable varieties including kale, carrots, and beets.
