We are very excited to join Douglas College at the Sol Garden this month! Together we are going to learn various seed saving techniques so you can start your very own seed library at home! You can get started by bringing home some seeds from our garden!

Seed saving is a great way to preserve plant biodiversity.  We can preserve the diversity of native plants or heritage plant varieties. Individual seeds of open-pollinated plants are also storehouses of diversity within plant species. Both kinds of diversity can be key to repopulating habitats destroyed by wildfires, disease or other catastrophes using stored seeds.

Join us on August 22 from 5-6:30 pm for a Seed Saving Workshop at the Douglas College Coquitlam Campus (1250 Pinetree way). This is an inclusive, free event. All are welcome. Registration is required. Please email Naomi Higo at iue@douglascollege.ca to register.
