The last Garden workshop was focussed on harvesting and growing from your own seed.
This subject was repeatedly requested by the enthusiasts that keep the community garden ticking over. The workshop was open to all school garden contributors, all the Somers Primary School Community and even their friends. We had a great turn out; 15 people. Close to perfect size. In the future we may have to limit numbers depending on the workshop activity. Its nice to be popular.
Jess Brady led the workshop. Harvesting your own seed is an essential skill that saves you money. It really completes the cycle. When you see your own seeds germinating and then growing to maturity its quite inspiring. We can grow, harvest, store, share and plant seeds from appropriate stock. We do not need to rushing off to the nursery for seedlings every time.
We have tried to demystify the process. The workshop feedback has been excellent and we will try to respond to interest/need in the future with more Workshops.
