Event Description

In this workshop Beth and Nathan Corymb will share their 30 years of experience, with suggestions about how to begin seed growing on your farm or to further your expertise. We will discuss the role of seed in the farm organism, the cultural and artistic benefits of growing seed, integrating seed growing into market and CSA production, growing seed for your farm, and growing seed to sell. Practical considerations such as plant families, populations, pollination, and isolation will be addressed, as well as finding markets and how to become a sought-after grower for seed companies. We will also explore how growing seed can help unfold your farm individuality, how seed from a diversified biodynamic whole farm approach offers special attributes for the future, and the deeper aspects of anthroposophical striving and understanding in relation to the seed.
