Field visit at the Captivating Seeds

Aug 10, Aug 24, Sept 14, Sept 28          
Roulant farm, 261 Chemin Senneville
Montreal, QC

The Captivating Seeds is a demonstration plot of 3330 square foot that showcases forty five varieties of vegetables adapted to the nordic climate and organic agriculture, some of which are heirloom, indigenous or new lines selected directly by farmers. The seeds were provided by a dozen ecological seed growers of the region. Each visit will reveal different secrets of these varieties.

From August to October, we invite you to get acquainted with these delicious ecological varieties and the producers working to bring them to life. We will be working with passionate volunteers like Libertad Castro-Colina to cultivate the crops, collect data from observations and install signage. We will also offer educational tours and informative workshops with partners to bring the stories of these seeds to life. Finally, we will work with the chefs and restaurateurs to harvest, prepare, taste and compare varieties. The gardens are taking shape, so come on down!
