I’m planning on checking this out. I’m hoping (please!) that it will be one of my last weeks of being unemployed and that I’ll find a job soon, but in the meantime having weekdays free has allowed me to participate in some great events like this and the rally against Monsanto a few weeks ago.
I’m curious about the seed ball bike ride…sounds to me like they’re planning on scattering seed in public green spaces? That’s my guess anyway. Many gardeners, farmers, and permaculture enthusiasts were at the Monsanto rally at City Hall, so I’m hoping some of them will be on board for this and that perhaps they’ve used their influence to put a vote toward scattering native plant seeds.
It sounds like there will be speakers and demonstrations throughout the morning and afternoon. I think it’s great that people are getting together on such a large scale to exchange seeds and to encourage others to grow food. I’m hoping it will have a good turnout! I’m taking a look at what seeds I can bring and I’ll report back on the event next week.
