Why would you want to save your seeds? Well, there are a few reasons:

-It preserves food culture and history.
-Overtime, by taking the seeds from the best produce, you will get the most desired produce.
-It is much cheaper!

Here's how you can do it:

Plant and wait until your produce matures. There are many different cues that let us know when certain plants are mature. Next is to harvest your veggie or fruit and separate out the seeds. You can dry the seeds out in the sun or in a jar of rice. Make sure you keep them in a cool dark place inside glass jars, metal containers, or tightly sealed cloth bags.

You may have noticed a "For Sale" sign at Imperial Garden. We are actively looking for a new gardening space to accommodate our Imperial Garden gardeners if/when the land sells. If the land does not sell before our 2022 season begins, our plan is for gardeners to continue gardening like usual.

We appreciate the time that the landowners of the Imperial Garden have allowed us. Our Community Gardens Program depends on the community and landowners to maintain and grow our programs.

We will continue to keep in contact with our Imperial gardeners via email, and we will continue to post updates on Facebook.

We thank you all for your support, and we look forward to gardening with you during the 2022 season!

More harvest before the rain from the MacArthur Heights garden. FIRST TOMATO, yum!
Will any gardeners be gardening this afternoon? You could be on TV :)
I would imagine we need to start relaying some info to each other regarding the weather
The kick-off picnic was lots of fun! I am thrilled to have connected with fellow gardeners, and the bounty of plants shared was INCREDIBLE! These are not run of the mill varieties, but primo, cool heirlooms! Many thanks!:)
Do you have a fruit or nut tree on your street? Know of a mulberry tree that drops berries on the sidewalk of your local park? Walnut or Hickory tree on the corner? Click the link and put Green Bay, WI into the search bar. Add your tree to the local map.
Identify?
I need help to know how to get rid of these beetles eating the leaves of my Apple Trees.
