Living Lightly – The Art of Seed Saving

If you thought you could only harvest produce from your garden, think again!

Learn to save seeds from this year’s harvest and plant them again next year. Join Leela O’Callaghan from the Bellingen Seed Savers Group for a talk on the values of seed saving, techniques, tips and tricks, dos and don’ts. The session will also include an interactive demonstration with seed processing, discussion on sourcing and selection of suitable varieties and Q&A to cover participant’s experiences and interests.

Please join us for this hands-on presentation at the magnificent Coffs Regional Community Garden with delicious refreshments provided by Gardens volunteers.

This is a family friendly event. Bookings essential. Please wear enclosed shoes. 

NB: Please register tickets for all attendees including children aged 3 and over.
