Event Description

Village Vancouver, the EYA and a handful of eager seedkeepers are hosting the first of several SEED SAVERS GARDEN FORUMS, on Sunday, April 3rd, 1 – 3pm in the EYA Youth Garden, at the far eastern end of Cottonwood Community Garden (the corner of Raymur and Malkin).


We wanted to host this event in order to bring together experienced seedkeepers and beginners, in order to facilitate an accelerated, community capacity building in the skill of saving seeds.


With the current insecurity of our global food system, the relentless encroachment of genetic modification into commercial seeds and the glorious return of urbanites to growing their own food right in their own communities, we need to re-learn this ancient, time-honoured human practice of saving seed.


Would you be willing to make time out of your busy schedules and come join us for a couple hours in the garden – to share what you know, ask your questions and get to know others in the community who are inspired to do the same things that you are?


For this first meeting, we have loosely set a few themes to guide conversation. However, this is NOT a workshop – rather a forum for discussion and the sharing of knowledge. We would like to talk about:


PLANNING THE GARDEN FOR SEED SAVING (Soil building, space requirements, isolation and cross-pollination, garden design strategies, collective-multi garden seed saving)


Hope to see you there! And even if you are not planning to attend, please post widely so we can get the word out!
