Seed to Soil Garden Conference in March!
Connect with other gardeners in our community!
Slow Food Seacoast, in collaboration with Seacoast Permaculture Group, presents the First Annual Seed to Soil Conference, Saturday March 7 from 12 – 4pm at the Seacoast Waldorf School, 403 Maine 236, Eliot, ME. Join with 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.
