LANDWORKERS' SKILLS: INTRODUCTION TO SEED PRODUCTION

This course is now a free event - please register your place by emailing ellen@gaianet.org 

 

Dates: 29th June and/or 14th September. 

 

Join the Trill Farm Garden team, for a series of seasonal days learning about the techniques and benefits of saving your own seeds.

Both dates will look at the basics of seed saving in the context of a market garden. We will focus on how to fit seed production into an established market garden (or allotment) and what you need to know to produce good quality seed from a variety of crops.

In the summer course we will look at processing dry seeded crops as well as supports required for seed production. The autumn course will look at processing wet seeded crops and planning the garden to allow for seed production alongside food production.
