This workshop is an introduction to the holistic, Permaculture based approach to seed stewardship. A beautiful approach to working with seeds that brings the culture back into agri-culture, that infuses our gardens, kitchens, tables and families with beautiful stories of connection between humans and plants. Come learn how you can revitalize your human connection to these sacred heritage seeds, and honor their cultural and practical context within your daily life. Increase your seed literacy, and come away with a few essential practical skills that will help you on your path as an Earth Steward and Seed Keeper. Join this grand lineage of humans who have kept the seeds alive for the sake of future generations!
