Seed School in a Day is a powerful, one-day workshop aimed at shifting the seed paradigm back into the hands of our communities. The program is a condensed version of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance’s Seed School, the acclaimed six-day course that has graduated more than 700 students and launched dozens of inspiring local projects worldwide.
Seed School in a Day offers a comprehensive overview of seed knowledge available nowhere else. The program covers a wide range of topics spanning the history, science, business, and craft of seeds. Practical, hands-on activities are balanced with engaging lectures to provide a fun and interactive learning experience. Adult and teen participants of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome to participate in this challenging yet accessible workshop.
Instructor: Casey O’Leary is a self-proclaimed Seed Freak who runs Earthly Delights Farm in Boise and who co-founded the Snake River Seed Cooperative. Snake River Seeds houses a seed producer’s coop, a seed library, organizes seedy art projects and events, and teaches classes and workshops about seed saving. Earthly Delights specializes in locally-adapted seeds and offers a CSA, as well as gardening classes and a season-long, curriculum-based internship program for those interested in learning about urban CSA farming and seed saving.
