Weeds + Seeds Workshops

Get to know your weeds and seeds! We have two exciting plant related workshops coming up in September.  Check your calendars and let us know if you want to join us.  Registration available here.  Kids welcome to both these sessions.

Seed Saving on Sept 12 from 1-3 pm
During this workshop Taarini Chopra from Seeds of Diversity will walk us through all the steps of seed saving: from planning your planting and isolating varieties, to collecting seeds from plants in your garden, to cleaning and rogueing seeds, and storing your seeds to plant the next year. The workshop will be hands-on, and we will collect and clean seeds from a variety of garden vegetables, as well as tour the Little City Farm property to observe the diversity of vegetable, flower and herb seeds ready for harvest in the gardens.

Fall Wild Edibles on Sept 19 from 1-3 pm
Back by popular demand - Jackie McMillan, local wild foods educator, led us through a delicious spring wild edibles class and will now cover the different roots, barks, leaves and flowers that are abundant in the fall season.  We'll do some tasting and explore what's growing wild at Little City Farm, and also discuss proper plant identification and ethical wild-harvesting strategies.
