WE NEED OPEN-POLLINATED SEEDS THAT WE CAN SAVE AND SHARE NOW MORE THAN EVER!

 

Seedy Saturdays 2021

Please join us for FOUR Seedy Saturdays via Zoom every Saturday in March at 1:00 pm.    REGISTER HERE!

EVERY SATURDAY IN MARCH WE WILL COME TOGETHER TO….

CELEBRATE OPEN-POLLINATED SEEDS AND THEIR STORIES: We will use part of our time         together for a virtual seed swap so that you can tell  everyone about the open-pollinated seeds in your care that you have to share- where they come from and anything else that a new caregiver needs to know to help them grow. 

HELP THE OPEN-POLLINATED SEEDS IN YOUR CARE FIND NEW HOMES: We will have a spreadsheet for each Seedy Saturday that will allow you to describe which open-pollinated seeds you have to share along with your contact information so that everyone can figure out how to make their own socially distanced exchange / porch pickups happen safely!   Or you can just share that information in person in break-out rooms if you are more comfortable with that approach!

In the near future KASSI hopes to create a simple, searchable database that everyone can access throughout the year to swap seeds – but for now these spreadsheets will help all of us bridge the gap.  

LEARN: Seed saving and gardening experts will be available at every meeting to answer your gardening and seed saving questions.  Seeds of Diversity is preparing webinars about a range of seedy issues.  We will provide a link to a different talk each week that we can discuss if anyone is interested in doing that.  

CONNECT: We can create break-out rooms at each event so that people from different regions can get to know each other, gardening friends can get together to chat about gardening issues (how to outwit those pesky voles perhaps?) and anything else that tickles your fancy. 

We anticipate that each Seedy Saturday will be exciting and different.  You can use the same Zoom link every Saturday!  REGISTER HERE

AND YES- IN-PERSON SEEDY SATURDAY WILL RETURN AS SOON AS IT IS SAFE- HOPEFULLY IN 2022 BECAUSE IT TRULY IS ONE OF THE MOST WONDERFUL DAYS OF THE YEAR! 

We hope that you can find the peace and joy that comes from planting seeds and connecting with the Earth in these uncertain times.
