Planning a Seed-Saving Garden Workshop

with Leonie Croy

Please join us for a seed-saving workshop with a special focus on getting started in the spring. We’ll explore the differences between a seed saving garden and a food garden. We will also cover the basic concepts for saving seeds and methods for harvesting, drying and cleaning seeds. To launch the brand new Gibsons Seed-Sharing Library’s “Healthy Beans, Healthy Planet” Project, you will go home with a handout and a free packet of bean seeds.

Instructor: Leonie Croy, of the Sunshine Coast Seed Saving Collective

To register for this FREE event, call the library at 604.886.2130.
