Seed Growers workshop

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

This meeting of our seed growers network is the first of two planned for 2018; the second will be in November, date to be confirmed.

Open to all existing seed growers and people interested in growing organic seed commercially.  Places are restricted due to limited warm space so please BOOK YOUR PLACE early.  Please limit participants to 1-2 people per farm and give names when booking, thank you.

This February workshop will concentrate on planning, growing and harvesting techniques, with the November workshop looking at seed processing, variety maintenance and plant breeding.

The exact programme is still in the planning so if you have specific areas / crops that you would like covered please let us know when you book.

Please bring lunch to share.

There will also be an opportunity to discuss how networking and knowledge exchange can be improved, and ensure that seed growers have a voice in shaping the workings of the Seed Co-operative.
