Cloughjordan Community Farm is now offering a new set of half day and full day Farm-Based Seed Saving courses with open pollinated heritage seeds.
This is a practical, farm based seed saving course, based on selecting from the best varieties you already grow. Importantly, this course teaches seed saving without the requirement for on or off farm fridges.
11.10 am – 16.00pm
(Starting at 11.10am allows participants arrive via train. They can also depart via train the same day.)
