Intro to Seed Saving – 26th Nov
26th Nov, 6-7.30pm
Learn the basics of seed saving and join us for an interactive discussion exploring the vital role of saving and sharing seeds in these turbulent times of climate change, environmental degradation, socio-economic instability, and global health crises.
After delving into the importance of seed saving, we will focus on the practical side of how to collect, process and store both dry and wet seeds and have some fun getting our hands dirty processing tomato or pumpkin/squash seeds.
This session will mainly look at seeds and seed saving for food growing. You’re very welcome to bring or note down any plants you’d like to save seeds from, as well as any questions or issues you have come across and we’ll do our best to answer them together.
Materials you will need:
- Ripe tomatoes or alternatively a pumpkin or squash
- Chopping board, blunt knife, spoon
- Clean glass jar and lid
- Label or paper and pen
Many people have been affected in different ways by the Covid lockdown. Especially in these times, we want to offer accessible first-grade environmental education to our community, whilst still giving local craftspeople and educators paid employment. For this reason, we’re operating a pay as you feel system with a minimum price that covers only the materials, and a suggested donation that varies by workshop.
For this workshop we usually charge £10. The minimum price is £1 to ensure participation, with a suggested donation between £5-£10. Any money raised over operational costs is reinvested into the charity and helps us improve the croft for all – not for profit.
Our payment system is still a bit clunky. We’re working on an update!
