Glasgow Zine Fest
Garden Diaries: A workshop with Glasgow Seed Library
Sun 3 July 2022
Join Glasgow Seed Library for a workshop facilitated by Heiba Lamara and Alkmini Gkousiari to learn simple book binding and garden journaling.
By keeping a physical journal to keep track of our growing journeys, we can learn about the various natural and unexpected changes that our plants go through.
Learn how to make and bind your own diary to keep an eye on the growth of your seeds and discover different gardening methods, including working with lunar and biodynamic cycles.
The workshop will include a visit to Glasgow Seed Library, which is housed in the CCA, to share ideas on seed saving and organic growing. You will leave with a personalised journal in which to keep notes of your gardening adventures.
