On Friday 5th of February, OrganicLea will host a special event around seed saving.
They will be welcoming Nicholas Bell and Martina Widmer from the Seed to Seed project, who will give an introduction about seed saving and show a selection of short films from the comprehensive Seed to Seed DVDs, which give step-by-step guidelines on how to save the seeds of 32 different vegetable varieties in a total of 432 minutes’ worth of footage. There will be time for questions and discussion, and they are encouraging anyone with seeds to share to bring them along! There’s more information about Seed to Seed on the following site: www.seedfilm.org.
