Hi Everyone,

We are inviting you to an event sponsored by Planet Natural to support the success of anyone growing their own seeds.
Cheryl Moore-Gough the co-author of The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds (and co-author of 4 more gardening books!) will give two talks. Some important topics she will cover are the special handling of biennials, hand pollination, isolation methods, just what are F1 hybrids and why their seeds may not come true and more!




Michele Evans, with 30 years of seed saving experience, will provide hands on experience with seeds, practical information for growing seeds and bring real growing examples. Michele is a Montana Master Gardener Level 2 and a bio-intensive instructor working with Ecology Action.

We will finish with a Seed Swap. Bring your own seeds if you have them and envelopes or containers to collect them. Recycled junk mail envelope work well.

When: Saturday February 28, 2015 1-4pm $30
Where: Elk River Books, Wheatgrass Saloon
120 N Main, Livingston, MT

The future of healthy seed is in the hands of all of us individually!
We hope you can join us.

I'm excited for this event. Seeds are such an important key to our future, I've seen some amazing genetics bred on a homestead scale. Attached is the flier for the seed swap. I'm going to be bringing a small amount of Sepp Holzer's Ancient Grain to trade with whoever brings the most intriguing seed. What a great type of permaculture gathering to take place in winter!
