Workshops: Mobile Seed Cleaning Tour for Veggie Production & Seed Sovereignty
September 26 – 30, 2022
Join FarmFolk CityFolk to learn about seed saving, opportunities to run a vegetable seed business and best practices for efficient seed cleaning. The large mobile seed cleaner will tour the region providing demonstrations and more!
You are invited to bring your saved seeds to clean using the BC Seed Security Program seed cleaning equipment – you can see a list of equipment here. FarmFolk CityFolk staff will be on hand to demonstrate and assist with our seed cleaning equipment as well as answer any questions related to seed saving and production. If you are a farmer interested in incorporating seed production into your business or just interested in BC seed security, then this tour is for you!
