Seed Saving Workshop with Bob Wildfong

Description:

 

 

Join Bob Wildfong, Executive Director of Seeds of Diversity Canada for a free Seed Saving Workshop at the rare Charitable Research Reserve.  Bob will walk us through the gardens, explaining pollination and seed saving and answer our seed saving questions.  Bob has been saving seeds and teaching about garden biodiversity for over 20 years.  He mixes science and storytelling to reveal the secret lives of seeds, plants, and pollinators. Bob has been a member of Seeds of Diversity since 1988, and became their first Executive Director in 2002. He teaches food history at the Waterloo Region Museum, and  as a steering committee member of the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign, helps build the movement to preserve pollinators. He is a past President of the Culinary Historians of Canada, and delights in explaining how we can learn about future food sustainability by remembering past lessons.
