Seeds are incredible; the tiniest seed is the beginning of a giant tree. Seeds come in many shapes and sizes, in a rich variety of structures and forms. Seeds are vital for us to grow healthy and resilient food gardens, and seed saving is a fun way to learn about these important tiny grains of life.
This online workshop will be interactive and open to all ages and levels of knowledge. We will share what we know about simple plant biology, the life-cycle of common plants and seed production, especially for veggies and flowers that we grow locally.
Included will be:
- Discussion about the importance of seeds in food production
- Discovery and observation of different kinds of seeds
- Exploring plants in different stages of the life-cycle
- Tips about seed identification, saving and storage
- Activities on seed-sowing and seed-sprouting
Jade Peace and Kit Shepherd – co-leaders of this workshop – are on the Steering Group of Transition Bondi. They are often to be found deep in the dirt of the TB community garden at the back of 241 Bondi Rd. They revel in the delights that come with gardening – insects doing their buzzy work, new shoots popping up, fresh veggies to be harvested. Colour, beauty, surprise, fun and understanding are there to be shared – with you!
This workshop is free of charge, but you need to reserve a place. Limit is 16 participants.
The zoom link will be sent to you after you register on Trybooking.
