This Cork Heritage Week, join Jason and Deirdre Morrissey of Irish Seed Savers Association (ISSA) for a free, family-friendly seed saving workshop and open seed swap at Crawford Art Gallery in Cork.
A lunchtime workshop on seed saving with Irish Seed Savers Association’s seed curator Deirdre Morrissey, followed by a “seed show and tell” with Jason Horner, where people can bring, swap and sow food crop seeds and explain the origins of their saved seed.
At Seeds Are Stories, gallery-goers and gardeners are invited to learn seed saving techniques from the experts, and amateur seed savers are invited to bring their saved seed to trade with others, and to tell the story behind their seed. Children can also sow a seed to take it home and watch it grow.
No booking is necessary for this event, and it will take place in the Meat and Potatoes Project Space at the Upper Gallery of Crawford Art Gallery.
