February 8th seed saver meeting 2018

Please note that this month the meeting will be on the second Thurday of the month due to room booking problems at Creekside.

Also please note that we do not have a meeting in March because we have Seedy Saturday instead.

In February our speaker will be Michael-Anthony.

Michael-Anthony owns/operates Toadstools and Handtools Farm with his partner Jessica. The farm produces certified organic vegetables and mushrooms using regenerative agriculture techniques. Before turning to farming, Michael-Anthony was pursuing a career in academia and performed research as a forensic psychologist.

Michael-Anthony and Jessica

This talk will cover a broad spectrum of growing methods for the production of oyster mushrooms and explore what sustainable food can mean in relation to mushroom farming.

Before the main speaker we would like everyone present to introduce themselves and briefly describe their garden and what they love to grow.
The meeting is held at Creekside Commons, Lamberth Drive, Courteny and begins at 7.00.


Welcome to the Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers website. This is your “home-grown” resource for do-it-yourself organic food production and seed saving in the Comox Valley!

For our members use we have our own hand powered seed winnower (to separate the seed from the chaff) and use of an electric seed thresher (to separate the grain from the stalk).  See more under Resources.

Join the movement to save the diversity of our food crops by saving seeds from you favourite food crops and share them with your community. At CVGSS we share our knowledge, our experiences, good and bad, and we share our seeds.
