EVENT DETAILS

Slow Food Seacoast, in collaboration with Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group, presents the Third Annual Seed to Soil Garden Conference, Saturday, March 11 from 10am5pm at the Seacoast Waldorf School, 403 Maine 236, Eliot, ME.  Join a community of gardeners working to preserve our agricultural heritage and teach a love of gardening to all generations.

Why Seed to Soil? The cycle of life and of our food begins with a seed. As a plant grows, matures and dies, it returns to the soil as organic matter that nourishes the seeds of the next generation. In parallel, experienced gardeners nourish the younger generations of growers and gardeners. This cycle of life is what we wish to promote at our conference.

This year's conference kicks off with a cooking demonstration by Evan Mallett, Chef/Owner of Plack Trumpet in Portsmouth and author of the new book entitled Black Trumpet. A Chefs Journey through Eight New England Seasons.

The afternoon will feature several
round-table
discussions and hands-on workshops including:

- Seed Libraries: How to Save, Grow and Replenish Local Seeds.
- Attracting Pollinators to your Garden
- NH Harvest of the Month, a new program for schools and organizations.
- Sheet Mulch and Compost: Create Soil, Feed Soil


The conference begins with the cooking demonstration at 10, followed by a potluck lunch from 11:30 to 12:30. Afternoon workshops run from 12:45 - 3:30
with a Seed Share at the end of the day.  CEU Credits are available to any registered participant.



Who Should Attend? School gardeners, teachers, community gardeners, home gardeners and anyone looking to connect with other gardeners in our community. Join Us!
