The SCPN Presents
Permaculture Part 2 ~ Gathering Seeds For Change
with Leeanen Sidhe & Ben Terra
There is no doubt our planet is changing and we humans must change with it if we are to continue our sacred relationship to our Mother Earth. Making changes in our daily lives and adopting a more sustainable way of living is the most practical magic there is to achieve this goal. My partner Ben and I would like to share with you the knowledge we have gained through out our years of learning and personal experience as we walk along the path of permaculture.
The focus of this evenings' presentation will be on seed gathering and storage. Seed gathering is one of the most important aspects of cultivating a self-sustaining garden. If done properly you can create and ongoing "seed library" that will keep your garden going for years to come. Ben and I will share tips and techniques for seed gathering and storage and also talk about seed sharing.
There will be limited number of tomato plants that we will bring for sale. These plants are planted from our own seed that we have been saving each year. Most of the plants are heirloom varieties. All proceeds will be donated to the SCPN in apreciation for all the work they do for the Pagan community.
Leeanen Sidhe has been a gardener since she was a child helping her parents work the same land she lives on today. She also has taken many classes at College of Marin's Kentfield and Novato Campuses in the Sustainable Horticulture program. She also studied under Wendy Johnson at the Indian Valley Organic Farm located at the College of Marin Campus in Novato.
Ben Terra is a geologist who graduated from Sonoma State. He says he wanted to study the earth sciences because of his great love for Mother Earth that began when he first attended college at Humbolt State. He also has practical skills in carpentry and has been learning from Leeanen while helping out in their family's home and garden for the last 7 years.
Since our gathering is at the dinner hour, we ask that you bring a potluck dish and/or non-alcoholic brew to share that serves 4-6 people. Let’s treat ourselves to a good meal. Please bring your own place setting. There will be hot water available for tea.
We ask non-members to make a donation of $10 $5 to help us cover operating costs. No one turned away for lack of funds.
SEE YOU THERE!
