Event Description

Seed saving is the missing link in food security. In our current climate of seed patenting and ownership, it's important that our communities retain their knowledge about how to properly save seeds. We'll talk about the politics and the joy of seed saving, learn basic skills, and discuss the creation of neighbourhood seed saving collectives throughout Vancouver.

Suggested donation (including Five Levels booklet) is $30. No one turned away.

Your donation includes a copy of The Five Levels of Seed Saving by Terry Klokeid. Copies of Robin's brand new booklet Grow Your Own Seed Collective will also be available for $10.

Register at Ross at rmoster@flash.net.
