What is it?

The MN SEED (Saving Essential Edibles and Diversity) Project guides anyone interested in saving seeds from vegetables, fruits and native plants. All are welcome to join seasonal workshops on:

  • Identifying and inventorying native plants
  • Collecting, cleaning and preserving native plant seeds
  • Sharing and propagating seeds to increase the biodiversity and populations of native plants in our region.

This program is a collaboration among St. Paul Seed Circle, Como Community Seed Library and the hort society, and made possible by support from a Capitol Region Watershed District grant.


How to get started

Anyone growing within the Capitol Region Watershed District is eligible for class discounts and giveaways.
