Seed Saving is a quintessential aspect of sustainable farming. It allows for a greater connection with the food being grown, the growing process itself ane the cultivation of a crop through its entire reproductive system. By saving seeds we learn to be totally sufficient on the land! Lisa Bloodnick, from Bloodnick Family Farms, a well-known seed steward, who has been growing out rare seeds for the Experimental Farm Network, amongst others, will be sharing some of her knowledge and practices!
Bloodnick Family Farm is a diverse, horse powered family farm serving our community sustainably raised produce since 1992. We have operated our popular CSA for 25 years. In addition to raising produce, herbs and flowers we also raise a small flock of heritage breed sheep and make maple syrup. Lisa is also very involved with seed saving and is working on several special projects. She maintains a collection featuring among many things, approximately 1000 bean varieties.
