Seed Savers Session: Sunday 4 December

The next Canberra Seed Savers Get-Together is scheduled for Sunday 4 December 2pm-5pm at the Canberra City Farm Education Centre, 2 Dairy Road, Fyshwick.

We’ll be in the main building co-located with the Jerrabomberra Wetlands Office, which has kitchen access. There is heaps of off-street parking if you drive in through the second gate.

As well as our usual seed saving, we’ll be experimenting with making seed bombs of herb and vegie seeds. Come along and we’ll experiment together!

We’ve also got lots of seeds to sort and bag and label ready for markets and stalls over the coming months – and also to share around for growing out. If you have any spare seeds, please bring along for swapping, sharing or contributing to the central seed bank.

If you have any old gardening magazines, please bring these along as well (we make them into seed packets). Ideas for markets, fairs and stalls where we can sell Canberra Seed Savers seeds would be very welcome as well!

As always, BYO nibbles and drinks.
