Seed School comes to L.A.

seeds 300Are you involved in the urban agriculture movement?  Do you love seeds and growing food?  Are you concerned about the future of food and want to “skill up” in a very big and meaningful way?  Join us at Seed School, coming to Los Angeles in February 2014.

The Seed School taught by Native Seeds/SEARCH is a one-of-a-kind, highly progressive, in-depth look at seeds, saving seeds, heirloom varieties, and the future of the food supply.   Here are the details:

What:  Seed School, a 5-day intensive on seed saving

Who:  Bill McDorman and his team from Native Seed/SEARCH, of Tucson, AZ, an organization which is committed to saving the specialty food plants developed over generations by Native Americans in the desert Southwest.

Why: because our heirloom seeds are in jeopardy, which means the diversity of our food supply is in jeopardy, and our cultural heritage is being lost.  Our cityscape just might possibly be a great place to preserve it.

When:  Feb 9-14; the course runs five and a half days.

Where:  sites in West LA.  (yay, you don’t have to fly to Tucson!)  Sessions will alternate between The Learning Garden/Venice High School (LA 90066), and the Community Garden at Holy Nativity/Westchester (LA 90045).

Cost:  early-bird tuition is $600 per person for the 5.5 days.  (cost is set by Native Seed)

Who is organizing this:  the Seed Library of Los Angeles and the Environmental Change-Makers

More info plus registration info is on the Seed School on the Native Seed / SEARCH website.
