October 7 - Eric Kampe - Seed Saving and plant genetics
Eric Kampe is one of the five farmer/owners of the Green Things Farm Collective, an organic no-till farm outside of Ann Arbor. Together they grow organic produce, cut flowers, save seeds, and raise a small herd of beef cattle. Eric will share his experiences as a small farm seed saver since 2007. He will describe why seed saving is important, how the bigger seed saving industry is set up, and the unique value a small farm or garden seed saver provides. We'll go into practical detail about saving seeds for specific crops. He is also happy to share his experiences with collaborative farming and organic no-till soil management.
