Join long-time organic seed producer and founding member of the BC Eco Seed Co-op, Mel Sylvestre, for this one-day seed production workshop and field day at the FarmFolk CityFolk Research and Education Seed Farm in Abbotsford. This full-day workshop includes both classroom and field time as Mel covers the fundamentals of seed production before we head to the field to look at crops in the ground.

Growing seed is one thing but marketing and selling it is another. Chris Thoreau from FarmFolk CityFolk will present FFCF's research and resources on contract seed growing, seed enterprise budgets, and introduce the BC Eco Seed Co-op as a means of marketing your seed crops

Workshop fees include lunch and morning beverages.
