How to Grow for Seed Saving

An intro workshop to growing for seeds, in the Salisbury Centre garden.

People have been seed saving for thousands of years: whether to preserve local plants, improve quality, save money, connect to our food, or to share with others! It’s easy and fun, but did you know that growing a plant to eat is very different to growing to save its seed?

In this interactive workshop in the Salisbury Centre garden, we will go through the most common plants that people grow, and how you can grow and save their seeds. From controlling cross-pollination, knowing how many plants to grow to get healthy seeds, and choosing what to plant where, learn with experienced seed saver Hannah Brazil.


This workshop is free but spaces are limited, so be sure to register on Eventbrite. Come prepared for any weather!

You are also welcome to join our Shared Community Lunch at 1-2pm every Friday. Bring your own lunch or something to share.

Hosted by the Salisbury Centre’s Seed Library project, thanks to the Edinburgh Council Community Fund
