Education

True Harvest Seeds have been inspired to reach out to youngsters. There is at present, in schools across the country, a wonderful programme of events in schools teaching our children skills of self sustainability that we would like to add to. Our very own Katie Laurence has created a "Seed Saving Kit " which is currently available FREE to community groups and local schools, in the Newry, Mourne and Down Council area, so that people of all ages can learn and then practice the art of seed saving. There are 30 kits available on a first come first served basis, to apply for your kit please send an email to info@trueharvestseeds.co.uk, with your name, the name of your club or school, address and tell us why you feel you would benefit from one of the seed saving kits!

With training that we can provide the children can learn how to grow some of their vegetables for seed, save the seed over winter and then plant them the next spring and so completing the cycle of life that exists within the seasons of our climate.

Seed saving is a skill our forefathers, grandfathers and grandmothers would have grown up with yet in the present upcoming generation it seems to have slipped out of general knowledge and a reliance on imported seed sprung up in its stead. Here at True Harvest Seeds we hope you can avail of the knowledge we would so much like to share.

We would like to extend a heart felt thank you to Newry, Mourne and Down District Council for providing funding for the Seed Saving Kit. Without your generous help we would not have had the resources to offer this opportunity for further learning and sustainability to local schools and community groups.

The kits have been created as sustainably as possible using recycled packaging and will be reusable year on year.

A great way to get in touch with us is by email at info@trueharvestseeds.co.uk.
