Langley environmentalists going to seed

Pre-registration required for workshop on Monday night

Traditionally, seed saving workshops are help in person, and seed swapping is known to happen.

But Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) is taking the concept virtual due to COVID.

LEPS is hosting an in-person Zoom meeting Monday evening where organizers will explain how it’s not too late in the season t be saving some seeds from the garden.
