Join us for the fourth webinar of the The Green Palette project with guest speaker Kimberly Lessman from Cleveland Seed Bank.
Seed saving is a growing movement which encourages the growing of heirloom and open-pollinated plant varieties in order to save seeds and protect our planet’s biodiversity. Join the Cleveland Seed Bank and learn the basic information and techniques you need to start saving your own seeds in this virtual class. No background knowledge is required!
Kimberly has been saving seeds with Cleveland Seed Bank since December 2017. Before moving back home to Cleveland, she spent two years learning how to grow food and save seed on small, organic farms in the Puget Sound. Her passion to continue learning how to grow her own food followed after two years of service with AmeriCorps VISTA where she served as the Education Coordinator at Urban Roots, a nonprofit that teaches kids where their food comes from in Reno, Nevada. She spends most of her spare time hanging with her two cats, growing food on her urban farm, and adventuring in the Metroparks.
