West Boundary Sustainable Foods and Resources Society (FAR) held a workshop at the Midway Seniors’ Centre last Saturday. This was the first of Seed to Table, a series of four monthly workshops. The day-long session was entitled All About Seeds. Admission was free and a complimentary lunch was served to the packed house. Many came from as far away as the Similkameen to attend.

A display table was filled with examples of what can be produced even at this time of year: micro greens, sprouts and wheat grasses.

The sessions are being taped so the knowledge can continue to be shared. FAR will be holding a general meeting on Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Rock Creek Medical Clinic. They plan to launch their website at this meeting.

FAR president Leda Fair said that recordings of the workshops will be posted to the website. “I think it will be a great tool for everyone to see what can be done as far as gardening and farming are concerned, but it will also have the opportunity to learn and/or teach other skills,” she said.

Their next workshop is already scheduled: mark your calendars for Feb. 28 at St. Jude’s Anglican Church in Greenwood. That talk will be called All About Soils.
