Register today for a full-day Southeast seed growing intensive at Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s Sustainable Agriculture Conference focused on creating a foundational understanding of seed growing in the Southeast. The workshop will cover some of the basics of seed saving, including the technical, practical, and economic aspects of the craft, and aims to be as hands-on as possible with opportunities to process a wide range of seeds with different methods and technologies. Speakers will discuss seed contracts and working with seed companies, first-hand experience of being a contract seed grower, the importance of seed saving and cultural preservation, as well as knowledge, information, and stories of seed growing and seed saving from different regions around the country.
The intensive is being organized by OSA’s Jared Zystro, Chris Smith from Utopian Seed Project, Ira Wallace from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, Jason Roland from Organically Roland Farm, Gabreille Carter from Tall Grass Food Box, and Melissa DeSa from Working Food.
