Comox valley Growers and Seed savers presentation –
Thursday September 4th.
How to take care of our precious seeds.
Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers (CVGSS) is featuring a presentation on harvesting and saving seeds on Thursday, September 4. The meeting will be in the Common House of Creekside Commons Co-Housing. Come at 6:45 for a 7pm start. The presentation will be followed by a discussion, delicious refreshments and opportunities to talk to other gardeners. Vivien Adams, member of the CVGSS Community Seed Bank says, “There are more and more reasons now to grow food locally and to save the seeds and store them. If we are going to save seeds, we have to learn how to do that well, so that we can be custodians of these precious seeds.” She adds, “This presentation will inspire you to want to improve your seed-saving techniques so that we choose the best seeds and take care of them in the best way.” Gardeners who want to learn what to do with this year’s harvest of seeds, to grow them out next year and swap some with friends, will find practical advice and useful tips. Those who want to participate in local food security in light of climate change and other threats to seeds, will learn what can be done to ensure a local supply of seeds. This event is free for CVGSS members; non-members can attend by donation. For more information contact Vivien Adams at 250-338-8341
