Dear Seed Savers,


Happy August! There are so many things to be grateful for this month (we're looking at you, tomato harvests), and so many exciting things coming up to look forward to! But first, we wanted to share some great news from last month ... 

In July, we attended the annual Seed Saver's Exchange Conference & Campout in Decorah, Iowa. As always, we had a blast! It is so inspiring to be surrounded with so much passion, knowledge, and (of course) so many seed savers! What made this year more exciting than ever was The International Seed Library Forum Steering Committee (formed last year in Tucson at the first ever International Seed Library Forum) met several times over the course of the conference to discuss goals and determine how best to support & advance the seed library movement in North America. As committee members, we were privileged to be a part of this process and are happy to report that Seed Saver's Exchange and USC Canada - leaders in the field in their respective countries - have committed to spearhead and centralize future efforts to further the cause of seed libraries. The Steering Committee's involvement will continue, and we couldn't be happier to be organizing around two such fantastic organizations! 

And now, on to August ...

We invite you to join us at our upcoming Seed Saving Workshop this Saturday in the Buckeye neighborhood of Cleveland to share in this season's abundance & learn how to conserve heirloom & open-pollinated plant varieties to use in your garden next year. This hands-on workshop covers plant reproduction for the major vegetable plant families, cross-pollination, preserving varietal purity, seed storage, seed cleaning, and how to maximize the benefits of our urban conditions to get the very best seeds for our Cleveland gardens.

We are looking forward to sharing our knowledge (& organic seeds) with you this weekend!

With gratitude,

Your friends at the Cleveland Seed Bank

P.S. Peak seed saving time is upon us! If you can't make it to Saturday's event, be sure to order our Cleveland Seed Bank Seed Saving Guide for only $5 on Lulu.
