Just Food, in partnership with Gaia Organic Seed, brings this workshop just in time when you are starting and planning your garden this year. Locally tested and adapted seeds are essential for your garden success. This is especially true in our region with the weather patterns in combination with a changing climate.

What will the workshop cover?
This workshop focuses on what you need to know to be able to harvest seeds from your own garden plot or pot. Plants naturally go to seed, but to grow vegetables for seeds, there are basic principles to follow and techniques to use. This workshop is for both beginner and experienced gardeners and will equip you with the necessary skills to harvest your own seeds successfully for growing in the next years to come.
How will the workshop be structured?
This interactive online webinar will begin with a “classroom session” with lots of pictures, followed by a demonstration and Q&A with the instructor. *Note that there will be a chat feature which you will be able to use to ask questions during the workshop!
