Celebrate the UN designated Year of Soil by getting serious about seeds. This three-week intensive led by Urban Harvest, Toronto's first urban agriculture business formed in 1997, will have you seed and soil savvy just in time for the growing season. Terminology, soil 101 and growing from seed are covered in week one; seed preservation, measuring seed vitality and deciphering seed status (organic, heirloom, GMO) week two; gardening with seed saving and biodiversity in mind, maintaining heritage seed stock, promoting (the right kind) of pollination and connecting with the champions of the seed world in week three. The focus is on indoor learning with some hands-on components. Receive a packet of Urban Harvest seeds each week as homework.
Classes scheduled every week on Tuesday starting 12/05/2015 and ending 26/05/2015 at 6:30PM
