Seed Savers Connect

It is time to register for our next quarterly Zoom meetup of seed savers around Australia. Come along and join in. It’s an opportunity to ask questions, share experiences, gather new ideas, learn something and connect with other seed savers.

Register in advance for this meeting:

We have arranged three interesting talks that cover different aspects of seed saving and the different ways in which our groups operate. We will also have an open discussion about the tools we’re using for seed processing. Bring your questions and, especially, bring your favourite tools and equipment for seed processing!

Arian McVeigh & Thea O’Loughlin – ACT – Canberra Seed Savers : Seed Saving as a Cooperative Project – All about their Dwarf Tomato Project Working Group and how it operates and what it aims to achieve. (Advertised for the last session but Arian was unavailable at the last minute).

Lloyd Sharp – NSW – Mid-Blue Mountains Seed Savers : True Potato Seed – What it is, what’s involved and a look at Lloyd’s current harvest grown from seed. And a very quick overview of the biosecurity restrictions on sharing potatoes.

Danica Aldridge & Rebecca Hutton – Tas – Devonport Seed Library : About a Seed Library – How their library started, how it operates and what is happening seed-wise in their region of Tasmania.

Facilitated discussion: Show and Tell Time – What are you using to make seed processing easier? Where are you sourcing it? Sieving, winnowing, threshing. DIY, repurposed & purchased options – we want to see it all, no matter how simple or complicated.

If possible, please send photos of your tools & equipment to by Saturday 5th August so we can make it easy to share the pictures during the discussion. If you can hold the items in front of your camera on the night you are also welcome to show them that way.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
When: Aug 6, 2023 05:00 PM Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
