SOMERS, N.Y. -- The Somers Library will host a class on harvesting, cleaning and storing seeds on Sept. 19.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Somers Library, the class is hosted by Shanyn Siegel, the editor of "The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving" and former collection curator of Seed Savers Exchange.

The course will demonstrate how to clean seeds with common household materials, ripeness indicators and how to best gauge seed maturity, staggered versus once-over harvesting and the harvesting differences between dry-fruited and fleshy-fruited crops. Threshing, screening, wet-processing and winnowing will also be demonstrated.

The free class will be held in the Program Room from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
