Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
Our 1st "official" gathering! We'll have the Kits Seed LIbrary present - bring seeds to donate or swap if you have 'em -and discuss how we intend to make it accessible to the community. We'll also have our small seed book library present and look at other resources (other seed libraries, other seed saving efforts and collectives in Village and elsewhere, including the Sunshine Coast Seed Saving Collective). We'll discuss the Kits Village Seed Collective and what we want to be doing -- for instance, recording the seeds we save (and viewing some examples of how to record seeds), providing seeds for gardeners in exchange for them helping us replenish our library after the growing season, saving heritage seeds, a seed bank, the seed box, promoting seed saving, workshops, a new grant, and explore other potentiial opportunities and interests.
Finally, we'll acknowledge the very important role Robin Wheeler has played in helping further seed saving and building food resilienc in BC. (Robin is very ill.)
Afterwards, we'll head over to Seedy Saturday at Van Dusen.
Next meetings - March 5th and 21st. Details to follow.
