We are hosting a programme of FREE training events to help you plan and undertake your seed saving activities in 2014.
The workshops will cover choosing the species that you want to save, how many to grow, how and why you can prevent cross-pollination, selecting and finally saving the seed. Come along to one or several of the sessions to develop your knowledge as your crops are growing, learn from experts and share your experiences with other growers and savers.
The sessions are free. We invite you to come and learn and in return commit to putting your learning into practice and later in the year return some 0f your seed harvest to the London Freedom Seed Bank. In this way the seed bank, and the network of seed savers, will grow, diversify and able to offer more free healthy seed to more new growers and savers.
