Seed Saving 101 - Live Stream Chinook
Saving your own seeds not only completes the cycle of life in the garden, it gives you a store of free seeds to use and share!" Join Janet Melrose, Calgary’s Cottage Gardener, as she gives us insight on planning now to save seeds from our gardens this year. She’ll show us which to sow and where, how to mature plants; harvesting techniques and how to store seeds over the winter.

The last 20 minutes, please join Dr. Jennifer Dyck she will tell the Seed to shelf: the Natural Factors farms story
The Whole Earth & Sea difference starts with the best raw materials-high potency foods. We grow many of the organic raw ingredients on our own farms, located in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, where we have been harvesting 100% organic crops from our own non-GMO seeds for almost a quarter century. It takes strong roots to flourish
Factors farms are certified 100% organic and non GMO. Our crops are only fertilized with compost and nitrogen-rich sea plants and meticulously cared for by hand. We harvest whole plants, fresh by hand at their peak and process them immediately at our own facilities.
