We’ve finally got ourselves organised and POW is running the Seed saving workshop on 16th May.
POW is running a seed saving workshop. Seed saving is about preserving the genetic diversity that evolved over millions of years. Genetic diversity is slowly being lost, due to genetically modified forms of plants and hybridisation. We’re becoming more reliant on multinational companies like Monsanto as the seeds from hybrid or genetically modified plants are sterile or not true to type; this means gardeners and farmers become locked into buying seed each year.
Topics covered: when the seed can be harvested, how to harvest the seed and store it, how long it can be stored.
On the day, you’ll be able to join a new seed savers network for the western suburbs.
Location: Braybrook Community Garden, Skinner Reserve 107-139 Churchill Ave Braybrook.
