Don’t miss this rare Vancouver opportunity to learn about Seed Saving from four top BC seedswomen.

We will be discussing seed saving basics, the politics of seeds, how to build seed collectives and learn to select for good traits. We’ll learn about isolation distances, small business creation, hear stories and work together to create the base for a local seed chapter.

Suggested donation: $30. Subsidies available; no one turned away for lack of funds. Limited to 25 participants.
