Thursday October 15, 2020 through Sunday October 18, 2020
We invite you to join us at Seven Seeds Farm for a 4-day journey of exploration, connection, and visioning with seeds.
The journey with connecting more deeply with seeds as a source of life begins with seed saving, then progresses to seed growing on a farm or garden scale. The master level is seed stewardship, cultivating a deep relationship with the species and all of its potential for bioregional adaptation to climate, pests, disease and agronomic & culinary preferences.
IS THIS JOURNEY FOR YOU?
The Seed Academy is for gardeners, farmers, permaculturalists, those interested in starting a neighborhood seed library or seed bank, those interested in stewarding and preserving heirloom varieties, and all who see growing and saving seed as a wonderful way to grow a positive future. No prior experience is necessary, however, some gardening familiarity will be helpful. We welcome all BIPOC and marginalized communities. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. We also offer scholarship opportunities.
WHAT IS THE SEED ACADEMY?
The Seed Academy is much more than a simple "seed saving" course; it is a deep dive into whole systems theory and management and an immersive experience in a mature Permaculture Farm site. Don Tipping is the lead instructor who brings 25 years experience in organic farming, seeds, permaculture and enthusiastic on-farm education. The experience includes delicious organic meals from the farm, camping, showers, instruction, handouts, field trips and a deeply nourishing dive into co-creating regenerative culture.
Are you ready to answer the call and become a steward of seeds?
