Sorry to say but this event is now all booked out. The interest and response in the seed saving workshop and the guided tour of Black Barn Farm has been amazing! It won’t be your last chance to engage though, check out Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga for all of their events and to receive notification of upcoming Black Barn Farm events sign up for seasonal updates or follow on Instagram or Facebook.

Hosted by Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga and Beechworth Food Co op at Black Barn Farm, this is the perfect place to begin your love affair with growing your own food, contributing to biodiversity, discovery of unusual food varieties and connecting with others who are keen to explore the magic of growing your own food from scratch.

The event is free and includes a 1.5 hour seed saving workshop by Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga (so bring your questions and some examples if you have any) and the opportunity to take a wander around Black Barn Farm with farmer Charlie who will talk you through his permaculture approach to orcharding and fruit tree propagation. In between you can share a pot luck lunch (so bring something to share) in the old apple packing shed at Black Barn Farm.

Farm tour and seed saving sessions will be run simultaneously in both the morning and afternoon, so you can choose to join us for just the morning, afternoon or both.

  • Morning seed saving workshop or farm tour: 10:00 – 11:30
  • Pot luck lunch: 11:30 – 12:30
  • Afternoon seed saving workshop or farm tour: 12:30 – 2:00

Please don’t book yourself into a seed saving workshop and farm tour that run at the same time! We’d love you to attend both, just make sure you book one in the morning and one in the afternoon, not both at the same time.

A gold coin donation on the day to Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga, a community not for profit group, would help them to continue their amazing work, events and maintenance of seed cleaning equipment.
