Winnowing is an ancient technique that we still use today to prepare our seeds for the Seed Saving Network.

It’s really simple to do. All you need is seeds and some wind!

🌾 Rub seed heads with your fingers to encourage the seeds and chaff to fall off.

🌾 Hold the container of seeds above another container and allow the wind to blow away their lighter chaff.

🌾 Depending on the strength of the wind, hold the container lower or higher.

A reminder that we are hosting a free Seed Swap on April 6th here at OmVed Gardens, and you can still order free seeds by joining our Seed Saving Network here.
