These workshops are being sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Seed Collective and are offered by donation. The Grandmothers and Grandothers will also have some nice treats available for sale at this time and throughout the day.
To volunteer for the event, sign up as a vendor or to donate to the tool swap shop or door prizes, please contact our event coordinator Nicole Mckay – firstname.lastname@example.org
The intention of this event is to create a gathering space for our community to participate in a communal seed exchange prior to planting season with local farmers’ and artisans’, freshly prepared food, treats, kids activities, information booths, workshops and speakers.
This is a fun and informative event for the entire family to enjoy. All proceeds raised during this even go to support the efforts and future endeavours of One Straw Society.
