Seed savers to meet in Courtenay

Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers first meeting of 2012 is Jan. 4 7-9 p.m. at the Salish Building in Lewis Park.

Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers first meeting of 2012 will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 4 from 7-9 p.m. at the   Salish Building in Lewis Park.

There will be two presentations: Setting up a Mason Bee House (to increase pollination in your yard), and Separating Seeds from Chaff.  This will be followed by a seed packing session.  Bring seeds that you have collected which are dry enough to store.  If you don’t have any seeds, come and learn about saving them to help ensure our local food supply.

Please bring your own cup for refreshments.  Bring any gardening questions – we’re a friendly group with lively discussions.

Memberships are due now, and you can renew at the meeting.

Not a member?  You are welcome to join our group anytime or come as our guest.

For more information, call Catherine at 250-898-8414.
