Seed Saving 101 and Farm Tour – Sat 17th Feb 2018
Hosted by Albury Seed Savers and Beechworth Food Co op at Black Barn Farm, this is the perfect place to begin your love affair with growing your own food, contributing to biodiversity, discovery of unusual food varieties and connecting with others who are keen to explore the magic of growing your own food from scratch.
The event is free and includes a 1.5 hour seed saving workshop by Seed Savers Albury Wodonga (so bring your questions and some examples if you have any) and the opportunity to take a wander around Black Barn Farm with farmer Charlie who will talk you through his permaculture approach to orcharding and fruit tree propagation. In between you can share a pot luck lunch (so bring something to share) in the old apple packing shed at Black Barn Farm.
Farm tour and seed saving sessions will be run simultaneously in both the morning and afternoon, so you can choose to join us for just the morning, afternoon or both.
- Morning seed saving workshop or farm tour: 10:00 – 11:30
- Pot luck lunch: 11:30 – 12:30
- Afternoon seed saving workshop or farm tour: 12:30 – 2:00
