At the Davis bay Hall

5123 Davis bay rd., Davis bay

10am to 12pm: Saving Seeds that Sustain Us
with Leonie Croy & Maria Hunter

This is a beginning seed saving workshop.  It is extremely empowering to save seeds from the food you grow in your backyard.  We’ll explore how simple it can be when you start with plants that self-pollinate and produce mature seedthe first year.  We will cover reasons for saving seeds, identify basic concepts of seed saving and relevant botanical terms and also discuss methods for harvesting and drying beans, lettuce and tomatoes.  By the end of your class you will have demonstrated a couple of seed cleaning methods and go home with a seed saving handout and a package of seeds.
Participants can also stay to participate in a demo on cleaning carrot and parsnip seeds after the workshop.  

Class fee is by $10 – Please pre-register for this event!
