Saving seeds is an age-old tradition that is growing in popularity amongst gardeners due
to its many benefits. Saving seeds saves money, prevents heirloom varieties from going
extinct, and develops resilient seed varieties. It’s also fun and very satisfying. Participants
on this course will learn the basic skills to harvest and save seed from vegetable crops and
flower plants, including planning, selection, harvesting and drying. The course includes
a little bit of botany and lots of practical experience harvesting seeds in the Irish Seed
Savers Association gardens. The course is delivered by a highly experienced tutor and is
suitable for both beginners and more experienced gardeners, as well as GIY groups and
community gardens.

Our Big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day courses to choose from. You can take a single course or two courses over the weekend. Our courses always get positive feedback from participants and you will benefit from on hand expert tutors with years of experience in their field. The weekend format also offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and to spend some time in our gardens, orchards and woodlands in beautiful East Clare.
