Seed School in a Day offers a comprehensive overview of seed knowledge covering the history, science, business, and craft of seeds. Practical, hands-on activities were balanced with engaging lectures to provide a fun and interactive learning experience. The school was led by the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance.
