Bio-Regional Seed Bank Internship: February 15 - 26, 2016 (2 Weeks)

Posted by Kay Baxter over 8 years ago

Learn everything you need to know to set up your own bioregional seed bank - Your future food security!

As community based organisations develop skills and networks that foster local sustainability and community self reliance, the question of seed saving becomes increasingly important. While seed saving

is not difficult, there are many things to take into account if you are serious about ensuring food security, and the survival of specific varieties.

This 10 day workshop will give you the skills and understanding to grow and save your own seeds, and to ensure that the seeds you save will be high quality, for longevity and with the potential for optimal nutrition. Whether you are planning to set up a seed bank for a larger community, or would like to address food security for your immediate family, here you will find the skills and resources required. Processes taught are very low tech, and could be adapted to suit any situation, including rural villages without electricity or technology.

Course Outline Includes:

  • History of Seeds
  • Why Save Seeds?
  • Which are the best seeds for us to be saving
  • Where do we find them?
  • Planning gardens for Seed Saving
  • How to grow high quality seeds
  • Admin systems for small scale seed saving
  • Equipment and Storage
  • Cleaning and processing seed
  • Packing seed
  • Designing food security for your family/community
