Seed Saving Workshop

Join Tess for an afternoon of learning how to save your own seeds. This will be a hands on workshop where you will learn how to harvest, process and preserve seeds from your garden for planting next year.

Seed saving is a fantastic resiliency skill which encourages the growing of heirloom & open-pollinated seeds to increase the genetic diversity of plants available to us all and of course of our future generations.

We will cover some basic theory behind seed saving, as well as different methods and storage. And of course there will be some seed to take home with you.

When: Saturday 10 October 2020 1-4pm
Where: Workshop held at the home of Crafty Gatherer in the Papamoa Hills, Bay of Plenty.

Cost: $40
