Saving Seeds As If Our Lives Depended On It

Have you ever wondered where those little jewels come from that sprout into beautiful tomatoes, apples, pumpkins and more? Seed saving is a critical step in the seed to table process and helps to sustain our food supply.

This is why we are offering a Seed Saving workshop with the Richmond Food Security Society, where you can learn about the importance of this ancient tradition and how we use it to sustain ourselves. Dan Jason, founder of Salt Spring Seeds and author of Saving Seeds As If Our Lives Depended On It, will lead us through this informative and stunning workshop.

WHEN: Monday, Oct. 3rd, 5-7pm

WHERE: Terra Nova Rural Park @ The Barn, 2631 Westminster Hwy

Tricia and Alicia, the ladies behind The World In A Garden, have been checking out urban farm and educational food projects in Portland. Yesterday, they visited North Portland Farm, where a group of dedicated souls making up Project Grow are hard at work keeping up this urban farm and even creating beautiful pieces of art in their studio.

We were stunned to see beautiful black heritage tomatoes growing their garden! This discovery made us realize the beauty that comes from heritage and heirloom seeds and that it is important to preserve our seeds so that we can continue our legacy.

We encourage you to save your seeds so we can secure a better tomorrow for future generations of people (and tomatoes).
