Do you have leftover seeds from your seed swap or seed library?

We can help circulate them to our representatives who will put them to good use at other community seed swaps. Every week during the winter, we mail books and table-top materials to Seedy Saturdays and Seedy Sundays all across the country, so we can easily include your leftover seeds in our packages. Our volunteers will make sure the seeds get to their local seed swap tables and seed libraries, so you'll know that they won't go to waste.

Mail your leftover seeds to:

Seed Cleaning/nettoyage des semences

Vendredi 19 Octobre 2018          1 to 4
Ferme Coopérative Tourne-Sol
1025 Chemin Saint-Dominique Les Cèdres, QC

Le nettoyage des semences est une étape importante afin de préserver la qualité d'une semence. Cependant, il n'est pas toujours facile de déterminer quelle méthode de nettoyage est nécessaire, et à quelle étape l'investissement dans de l'équipement est le plus approprié.

Pour d'amorcer ces questions, USC Canada est la Ferme Coopérative Tourne-Sol invite les semenciers et maraichers de la région à mieux se familiariser aux différentes étapes de production de semences, avec un focus sur le nettoyage.

Durant cette formation, vous aurez l'occasion d'examiner quelles cultures sont produites dans les champs, ainsi quels types d'équipements et d'espaces sont utilisés pour le nettoyage et la conservation des semences.
