In May, our Seed Team launched the 2022 Seed Mentorship Program for six mentorship pairs across BC. Through the program, experienced seed saver mentors will share their knowledge with newer seed growers over the next six months of the growing season.
We are excited to introduce one of the mentorship pairs, Marsha Goldberg and Sarah Cordes on Salt Spring Island. Goldberg has been seed saving since 1993 and manages Eagleridge Seeds, a living seed bank that grows, stores, and shares endangered seeds. As part of our Seed Mentorship Program, Goldberg will mentor Cordes throughout this growing season.
