Intro to seed saving

Join Canberra Seed Savers for an introductory workshop to basic herb and veggie seed saving. There are many benefits to saving seeds; seed saving protects our heritage of abundant, open-pollinated food seeds from biodiversity loss. It also allows Canberra growers to make the most out of varieties that grow well in local conditions and can help reduce the cost of growing your own food.

Learn about basic seed saving techniques through practical exercises in this hands-on workshop. You will also hear tips for growing the best plants for seed in the Canberra region and explain how to be part of the Canberra Seed Savers Network. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions too.
