Fri, 28/09/2012 – Jude Fanton
This one-day workshop presented by Jude and Michel Fanton is being run by Permaculture Sydney Institute. It is the first of four events in Sydney to mark International Fortnight of Action for Seed Freedom.
The workshop will include species of lesser known plants, the self-seeding garden, saving seeds of annual and biennial crops, how to produce quality seeds, improving a variety by selection, local vs commercial “heirlooms” and how to use unexpected parts of familiar plants, thereby extending plant usage.
Local Sydney Seed groups are invited to come, swap and share seeds and produce as well as network and exchange information prior to the workshop between 9am and 10am. Only $69 for the 10am – 4pm workshop. This includes workshop fee, organic lunches, morning and afternoon teas and all course materials. All proceeds go to helping to start national and regional seed networks.
