There has been increased interest recently from people wanting to learn more about saving their own seeds. An appreciation of the importance of preserving heritage seed is becoming more widespread. Not only is there fear of big corporations controlling and monopolising seeds, but also a desire to take control of feeding ourselves without dependency on other sources.
To know how to collect, process and save seeds to keep for the next season’s sowing is therefore very important. Permaculture Noosa Seed Savers meet monthly on the 2nd Thursday morning of each month in Pomona at “A Touch of the Past” coffee shop. We exchange seeds, process and package, and have discussions on growing food.
For those who have been unable to attend and want to learn more, members from Permaculture Noosa Seed Savers are putting on a SEED SAVING PRESENTATION at the Permaculture Noosa monthly meeting in Cooroy on Thursday evening, 20 June 2013, at Cooroy Memorial Hall.
It will be an entertaining night filled with interesting stories, slide shows and hands-on processing of seeds. It will highlight important aspects of seed saving in order to save seeds with traits and genetic variability that are necessary for producing the healthiest plant.
Permaculture Noosa meetings are FREE and open to the public. Beginning at 7pm with a Marketplace (where members sell their produce or homemade products), the guest speakers start at 7.30pm and supper (gold coin donation) will be served at 9pm.
