Seed Processing Workshop

Dimanche 2 Novembre 2014          10 -1
Green Arrow Farm, 4895 Marshall Rd, Duncan (Parking is limited. Please carpool)
Duncan, BC

Save the Date! The Central Island Seed Savers Network (CISSN) is happy to announce that we will host two seed processing workshops this November. November 2 (Duncan) & November 30 (Courtenay).

Earlier this year, CISSN was awarded a grant from the Bauta Initiative on Canadian Seed Security to build some seed processing equipment that will be available for CISSN members and friends to rent. The equipment includes, an air-separator, a tumbler, and a series of hand screens.

As a component of this project, we will host two regional workshops were we will showcase and trial the new equipment. We will have seed on hand for cleaning, but feel free to bring your own seed to clean. The workshop will run through the lunch hour, so please bring a pot-luck dish to share.

Workshops are free, but we do ask that people register. We also have limited number of travel subsidies (available upon request). To sign-up for either workshop, or to inquire about the travel subsidy, please email Vanessa at .

Connexions Semences: Le Symposium de Semences

November 7-9          
Macdonald College, Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue

Profitant de l’incroyable réussite du symposium qu’il a organisé en 2012, l’organisme ECOSGN (Le Réseau des cultivateurs de semences biologiques de l'Est du Canada) fait équipe cette année avec l’Initiative de la famille Bauta sur la sécurité des semences au Canada pour animer son deuxième grand événement sur les semences écologiques dans l’Est du Canada.
Connexion Semences : ECOSGN Symposium de semences 2014 sera un événement entièrement bilingue qui réunira des agriculteurs, des sauveurs de semences, des entreprises de semences, des jardiniers communautaires, des chercheurs et des experts en matière de production de semences biologiques. Tous y seront pour partager leurs connaissances, leurs compétences et leurs expériences dans le cadre d’un programme de trois jours bien rempli! Que vous en soyez à vos premiers pas dans le jardin ou que vous soyez un producteur de semences chevronné, c’est l’événement tout indiqué si vous vous intéressez aux semences écologiques dans l’Est du Canada.

Un horaire détaillé et des renseignements sur l’inscription suivront sous peu. Visitez http://www.seedsecurity.ca/fr/121-ecosgn-symposium-de-semences-2014 pour toutes les mises à jour.
