PR-B Community Education offers Seed Saving class

Pine River-Backus Community Education offers a free Seed Saving class at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13, in the Pine River-Backus High School FACS Room (use Door 33).

This class will teach the basics of saving seed for vegetables you want to keep growing and to share with family and friends. It's not too late to save some of this year's seeds.

There will be informative handouts, demonstrations and hands-on experience. Questions such as how to keep plants from cross-breeding, when to harvest seed, how to know when seed is ready to store and how to store it will be addressed. Participants' questions will be discussed as well.

Register online at or call 218-587-2080 to ensure enough materials and seeds will be available for all.
