Seed Saving Workshop

May 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Steph Hughes

This informal, beginner – intermediate session is for members of the Summerside Seed Library and others who will be saving seed in their gardens this year. We invite you to reflect on your past seed saving experiments, keep in mind the seed packs you’ve purchased for this year, and come prepared with all your questions so Chris can help you troubleshoot for the upcoming gardening season!

Chris Sanford grows over 150 varieties of vegetables, grains, and flowers on her small diversified farm on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. She has been farming and gardening ecologically for over 15 years, growing seeds commercially for 10. Chris works with dozens of crops including squash and other curcurbits, brassicas, beans, peas, corn, small grains, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, alliums, herbs, lettuce, and biennials. Chris works part-time as the Community Gardens Coordinator for the Town of Bridgewater, and has taught workshops in the Maritimes and Northeastern US.

We’ll have snacks and beverages, and are suggesting a $10 donation for the event. As space is limited, please RSVP to Steph Hughes at
