Event Description

The season for seed saving is upon us. You are invited to come by for a cuppa and help pack garden kits.

The February 7th date is already full. The next seed packing date is the 14th.

Several people have expressed an interest in picking my brains about small space intensive urban gardening, seed saving, home preservation, etc. My pleasure, let's keep our hands busy while we chat.

Thank you so much to the people who came to help clean the seed. The efforts of many reduced many sacks of dried vegetation to neat packages of cleaned seed.

The end result of this effort will be seeds for various good causes and 45 garden kits: collections of seeds and starts designed for small spaces and container gardening. Some are already reserved for non-profits and gardeners with constrained resources. The rest are free to anyone, perhaps you, who would like to start a food garden. Help and donations cheerfully accepted.

Call me to reserve a garden kit or come to Tea and Seeds.

Hi Celt, Will you be able to join us for the Jan 16th event at bloom cafe 'Fertile Dreams Bloom - Into The Hands of the People" ? I have confirmation from Brian & Crystine of Uprising Organics they will be present for the 3:30-4:30 circle sharing-question/answer time.
Morgan will post more details on the event page tonight.

Heather, thank you, and yes, I would be delighted to distribute your meadow flower seed. The garden kits have wild and cultivated flowers in them for planting a border or just a big pot. The habitat is a place for beneficial insects to hang out.

Hi Celt! So great to see you continueing with the seed-garden kits!
I'm preparing to depart for working in warmer winter gardens, so I don't know when I could come by, except to phone you when I'm in town.
I did pass the word of your offering through our garden network on this WT site, and you could also request Shannon to post a note in her Garden-E- News list. I know there are lots of folks that would love to receive garden encouragment & wisdom!

I was thinking I would like to pass on to you, the seeds I have in bags. You could sort sort them into what you want to offer in your garden kits, or bring some to our Jan 31st seed swap...
(Or the seeds can be tossed into the wind over an open meadow or field with some cover crops seeds.) ( I won't have time to put the seeds into tiny envelopes before I depart)

I am so bummed to be out of town! Way to go Celt! Glad to see you offering your skills! I am wondering if you might want to check with some of the local Nursing Homes for your Garden Kits, I am sure there will be some NW Gardeners there who would love to have a garden! I'll let you know if I find someone!
