Seed Savers' harvest challenge

Seed Savers Albury Wodonga have risen to the challenge set by a Melbourne Permaculture group. They are encouraging gardeners to keep track of their harvest for a year. The idea is to see what a range of gardens produce. It's not about growing the most, but more about encouraging the record keeping and learning from each other.

Rumor has it some quite keen record keepers and productive gardeners have already taken up the challenge. But even those who rent, have a few pots on the verandah or have never previously recorded their harvest are being encouraged to join in. The extent to which you record your harvests is entirely up to you. See their flyer for full details (right or click here for a larger version).

Congratulations are also in order with Seed Savers Albury Wodonga recently taking out the Murray CMA's 2011 Millewa Award in the Urban Landcare Group category.

What's more, group's secretary Lou Bull was interviewed about seed saving on ABC Goulburn Murray radio. If you missed it, the interview and accompanying pictures are available on the ABC website.
