These three hours will be spent cleaning and packaging seeds. Normally we would have a separate time for instruction, but instruction will be built in to the entire three hours for this event. As we clean the seeds, we will learn about seed saving and packaging with a goodly smattering of general herb information. Hot coffee and herbal libations will be provided. Arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot by 8:15a.m. We will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636-4134.
