Event Description

Offered by Village Vancouver as part of the Sustenance Festival.

For those who understand the basics of seed saving. We'll discuss topics that relate to saving more challenging food plants, such as cross pollinators (squash) and biennials such as brassicas, especially as they relate to seed saving challenges in city gardens. Bring your questions and we'll address your seed saving issues.

We're also offering Beginners Seed Saving The basics of seed saving with a focus on annual and biennial food plants. We'll identify self-pollinators and cross-pollinators, and talk about the best seeds to start saving. We'll discuss the easiest seeds to save in small gardens and why, and how to harvest, dry and store seed. We'll clean some seed. Based on the booklet, The 5 Levels of Seed Saving.

Instructor: Maria Hunter, Dragonfly seeds, assisted by Leoni Croy.

Both workshops are FREE. Limited to 20 participants per workshop, attend one or both.

Supported by Vancouver Foundation's Neighbourhood Small Grant Program, administered by local Neighbourhood Houses.
