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, leading the reader step-by-step through the process of 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 themselves share their stories and help the reader to understand the importance of saving our seeds.
