The workshop went very well today and another workshop will be held in the fall.  There were several Gaia College participants so that was fabulous.  Let us know if you're interested by contacting us at:  It will be different from today's workshop.

That's great that you're able to offer the workshop for $10, especially as Five Levels of Seed Saving normally costs $6. The seed collective is doing vital work, and I hope a lot of people take advantage of this opportunity.
