seed circus 500

Roll up, roll up! Do you want to learn about seed saving? Or foraging for edible weeds?

Do you want to swap your way from a scarf to chilli sauce? How about swapping your way from bean seeds to bicycle parts, via seed potatoes? 

Join us at the inaugural Seed Circus – a day of learning, swapping, eating and meeting interesting people. Come when you like. Go when you must. Chomp on free organic popcorn inbetween, and learn to make seedballs while you’re there…

Free workshop schedule will be released shortly… in the meantime, texta in the date and start amassing your seeds, sauce and other swappables. Everyone welcome.

This event is part of Milkwood’s Fair Share and is also a part of International Permaculture Day….

if you’re too far flung to attend the Seed Circus, check out the Permaculture Day website with what is happening in your hood…

We hope to see y’all there!

        Ha, I’m not that skilful and theres no long stem garlic around here to practice on, it’s all in the ground apart from the winter store. What else?

    I really get a little thrill when I hear your email come thru. I so enjoy your daily posts at 6am. Luv what u do, freely promoting the ethics of Permaculture, your skills and activities. Great story… all the best to you and family and crew. :)

    I LOVE your poster…..did you design it?
    Sorry can’t be there as this would be the most beautiful birthday celebration to nourish my soul and senses :-)
    I’ve been collecgting, bagging and labelling echinacea, yellow dutch iris, fennel, garlic chives, apples, pears, quinces and basil over past couple of weeks and I feel very satisfied gazing upon all this stored energy……quietly waiting to be unleashed when we move to the farm.
    Love, laughing and local feasting to everyone,
