Join seed enthusiast Keith Nicholson in connecting with our world heritage the humble seed.

From there we'll go on to techniques, tools and considerations. Reclaim your local food sovereignty. Embrace an ancestral skill known to humankind for millennia. In this introduction to seed saving you will gain insights into how to save and propagate your own seed that you've been growing on your own, or learn to propagate purchased foods from seed. Rewind your food.
I grew up on a farm in central Ohio and my parents were seed savers who taught me a few things about how plants work. My love of plants led me a to a degree in horticulture and then eventually seven years with a seed company as a field and lab tech, doing pollinations and saving seeds for their breeding programs.
