Incorporating Seed Growing into your Farm or Garden
February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15
The Kamloops Food Policy Council invites you to join us for an afternoon of seed cleaning and a
presentation on How to Incorporate Seed Growing into your Farm or Garden with Mojave Kaplan
of Planting Seeds Project.
Mojave has been growing and saving open-pollinated and heirloom seed for over thirty years, and has
a wealth of knowledge to share about how to grow resilient seed that can produce in our ever
changing conditions and how to incorporate seed growing into your farm or market garden. She will
discuss good seed-growing practices, important factors to consider when growing for seed, and ideas
for garden or field plans to maximize pure seed outcomes.
After her presentation, Mojave will lead us in using the KFPC’s winnower and thresher (distributed by
Planting Seeds Project) to clean a variety of different types of seed. You are welcome to bring your
seed to clean, if you have any (depending on how many people bring seed, we may not get to all of it).
Once you have had an orientation on our seed cleaning equipment, it is available for you to borrow
from the KFPC to clean your own seed, in return for a donation to the KFPC Community Seed Library.
Date: Thursday, Feb 28
Presentation: 1-1:45 pm (or so)
Seed Cleaning Demo and Workshop: 2-4 pm
Location: Gardengate Training Centre Greenhouse, 915 Southhill Street, Kamloops, BC
