Develop your seed saving knowledge with a talk and Q&A with Richie Walsh, Scotland's Seed Sovereignty Coordinator.

This online seminar series will introduce useful information around pollination, seed-borne diseases and tackling seed pests.

In each event, a talk will be followed by the opportunity to ask questions and get support for your own seed growing and saving projects.

Seed Skills Seminars are suitable for people who have already begun their growing and seed-saving journeys and would like to dig deeper into the science and technicalities of saving viable and healthy seed.
