Jon and Russ Alcock have been growing seed at Sunshine Farm for decades and carrot is seed is one of their favourites. They will talk a bit about their experience growing carrot and other seed in Kelowna.
Chris Thoreau and Carla Hick from FarmFolk CItyFolk will also be on hand to share some of the latest work in BC seed security. Chris will talk about FFCF’s recent work in researching seed contracts; creating seed enterprise budgets, and growing seed with the BC Eco Seed Co-op.
