Seed Processing Workshop

Sunday November 2, 2014          10 -1
Green Arrow Farm, 4895 Marshall Rd, Duncan (Parking is limited. Please carpool)
Duncan, BC

Save the Date! The Central Island Seed Savers Network (CISSN) is happy to announce that we will host two seed processing workshops this November. November 2 (Duncan) & November 30 (Courtenay).

Earlier this year, CISSN was awarded a grant from the Bauta Initiative on Canadian Seed Security to build some seed processing equipment that will be available for CISSN members and friends to rent. The equipment includes, an air-separator, a tumbler, and a series of hand screens.

As a component of this project, we will host two regional workshops were we will showcase and trial the new equipment. We will have seed on hand for cleaning, but feel free to bring your own seed to clean. The workshop will run through the lunch hour, so please bring a pot-luck dish to share.

Workshops are free, but we do ask that people register. We also have limited number of travel subsidies (available upon request). To sign-up for either workshop, or to inquire about the travel subsidy, please email Vanessa at .
