Two upcoming events at the farm!

We're pretty excited to be organizing a couple of events at the farm in the coming few weeks. A seed saving workshop and then the much anticipated Tomato Fest. Hope you can make it out for one or the other!

-Seed Saving Workshop - August 31, 2:00 to 5:00 pm at Annapolis Seeds - Come learn the basics of saving seeds! As we tour through the Annapolis Seeds gardens we'll discuss seed saving techniques for many different vegetables, from the easy ones like beans to the trickier ones like the brassicas. Hands-on demonstrations too! We'll practice simple and low-tech threshing and seed cleaning techniques. We'll be covering all the basics but discussions will be guided by your interests, so more advanced techniques can be covered too. Cost: $25 - $40 for couples - or pay what you can. Contact me at or 902 825-0553 to register

-Tomato Fest - September 11, 12:00 to 5:00 pm at Annapolis Seeds - Come celebrate the tomato! Experience the incredible diversity of heirloom tomatoes that you simply can't find in the supermarket. We'll have about 100 varieties on display and for tasting... you'll be able to vote for your favourite! Guided farm tours will be throughout the day and we'll have workshops on growing great organic tomatoes and saving tomato seeds. More info to come... Cost: Free! Although donations will be welcomed
