Event Description

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.

The cost for a table is $25 so not sure if we will be tabling or not.  I would prefer to be spending our funds on seeds.

Hi all,

Since it's Seedy Saturday, we're going to start slightly earlier (9:30, instead of 10) and meet for a shorter period, and then carpool over to Van Dusen.

Hi Ross:  Haven't quite figured this out yet.  Will advise further when I determine if there is a cost, etc.  Cylia

Hi Cylia, We're going to head over to Seedy Saturday after our get together. We'll be looking for seed as well. Are you going to be tabling?

Hi Ross:  as much as I would like to attend your seedsavers meeting, this is the Van Dusen Seedy Saturday event which runs from 10 am-2 pm.  I either will be tabling it (depends on cost) or going to look for seed to add to our seed bank / collective.  Perhaps others from your group might want to do this as well??
