This is the second seedworkshop in a two-part series hosted at the Permaculture Skills Center with our guest Rowen White. Until just a few generations ago, seed stewardship was an integral part of every farm and garden. Now most people purchase seeds to start their gardens instead of planting culturally and regionally important heirloom seeds. This workshop is a holistic, indigenous permaculture-based approach to seed stewardship that honors the many layers of seed culture. We cover everything from practical hands-on skills to cultural context and memory, with guiding principles that are rooted in an indigenous ecology of interconnected relations.
This workshop will focus on the re-integration of seed saving into our farms and gardens and fundamental seed literacy for all levels. Rowen White, internationally renowned indigenous seed keeper, will be sharing her experiences and teachings of basic seed saving, cleaning, and storage, using practical hands-on skills, cultural context and memory.
Join us in learning the art and science of seeds, and be empowered to be a part of the bioregional seed freedom movement, to care for seeds for future generations.
