Foundations of Seed Saving with Jen Williams

Foundations of Seed Saving with Jen Williams


Sunday June 9th 10am-2pm


This hands on workshop will focus on the fundamental concepts that underpin garden and small scale seed saving and plant breeding.  First, we will talk about WHY it is important to save seeds.  Then we discuss pollination, fertilization and how seeds come to be.  We will learn taxonomy and plant family relationships and why these are important to the seed saver.  ​Beginners are welcome.   If you want to know more about saving seeds in your garden or farm then this is the workshop for you.  There will be pictures, be charts, plants, flowers, and story sharing. 

As June is early in the seed saving season, the hands-on portion of this day will be focused on making plant selections: walking through the beds and finding the best and worst plants to save seed.  You will have time to take what you learn and bring it into your own garden or farm as you plan your seed saving this season.  

All workshops take place at Wild Dreams Farm and Seed and include a farm grown lunch, tea, and a farm tour.  


Cost: $40 


As part of our commitment to inclusivity and equity we offer BIPOC scholarships for each workshop.  There is no application- only a desire to attend.  Please email  jennifer@ to claim your spot. 


About Me:

I am the steward of Wild Dreams Farm and Seed. I have been growing food, flowers and medicines on this land for over twenty years. I am passionate about connecting to the Earth through plants and seeds. I have taught children and adults in outdoor learning experiences for over ten years at the Vashon Wilderness Program, Family Link program, and various on farm workshops.

I teach and explain what I have learned about seed saving based on my direct experience and relationship with the plants, the words and experiences of my many Seed mentors, and my reading about this ancient art form. I am always happy to answer questions on other seed related topics so bring your curiosity!
