On Seeds: Conversation & Seed Collecting

As the season of seed collecting arrives, this conversation pauses to consider our human relationships with the world of seeds. What does it mean to participate in the propagation of plant species by gathering and later sowing embryonic plants? What are our responsibilities when we take, store, move, plant, and share seeds?

Join Moth Garden artists Lisa Hirmer and Christina Kingsbury, together with artist Alexandra Gelis, in this group conversation on Saturday, October 28th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Reserve a spot at this free event by registering at this link.

With Moth Garden turning to seed ahead of the winter season, we invite you to join us after our group conversation, in gathering seeds from the garden. Full of native perennials beneficial to nocturnal pollinators, Moth Garden is a place to spend time with the night-time world. We hope that by sharing seeds more of these plants will grow in local gardens, making the nighttime world a little richer for the beings that inhabit it.

Complimentary lunch will be provided.

Meet at the Farm Workshop Parking Lot at 10:30 a.m. to walk over as a group. Directions and details: https://mothgarden.ca/map/

Rain Plan: The conversation will move to the main floor of the Boarding House Arts building, 6 Dublin Street South.

Access Needs: Please contact hello@mothgarden.ca. If the walk to the garden is an access barrier, we can arrange to shuttle some folks to the garden.
