This Saturday, come learn about growing food through winter in the great refrigerator of the Pacific Northwest.

In this ever-evolving workshop we will discuss many topics from: when to plant, seed varieties for winter hardiness, and much more.

The 6th annual Winter Cropping Workshop, sponsored by the Eugene Permaculture Guild and Food For Lane County, is scheduled for 3.00 p.m. on Saturday June 20 at the Food For Lane County Youth Farm in Springfield.

The workshop and seed exchange will be facilitated by Ted Purdy, FFLC farmer; Andrew Still of the Seed Ambassadors Project, and Nick Routledge. If you have questions e-mail us at seedambassadors(at)gmail.com.

Bring your experiences and questions to share and any home saved seed to swap.
