‘Why Save Seeds’ w/ Seed Savers Exchange

Why is it important to save seeds? Join Seed Savers Exchange’s Education & Engagement manager, Jeanine Scheffert, as she discusses the importance of saving and keeping seed, potential threats to seed availability and variety survival, and how saving seeds can deepen our resilience around growing good food.

Jeanine Scheffert, Education & Engagement Manager at Seed Savers Exchange, oversees the organization’s education and engagement department. The department’s programming includes events, online education, Community Seed Network, a gardener-to-gardener seed exchange, tours, workshops, speaking engagements, and more. During the programming pivot of 2020, Scheffert created SSE’s Resilience Gardens Project, which addressed food security through regional partnerships and offered vegetable gardening and seed saving education.

Virtual Valentine’s Day Dinner Date

Looking for something a bit more special than another night with Netflix this Valentine’s Day? 

DUG is excited to host local food hero Chef Biju Thomas for an intimate night in with a virtual Valentine’s cooking class on Sunday, February 14th, 2021! Invite your favorite quarantine partner, don your finest date attire (or your most comfy pjs, it’s all cool), and meet us online in your kitchen as Biju walks you through preparing a delicious veg-forward (of course) dinner step-by-step, from cocktails through dessert.

We’ve taken care of everything–including custom cocktails, a live music set from long-time lovebirds Niki + Luke of The Dollhouse Thieves, and all the ingredients you’ll need to whip up your romantic meal–to keep the evening low stress and high fun!

Seed Starting and Grow Lab Demo

Want to start your own seedlings this year?

Not only is it cheaper than buying transplants, you can also start unusual varieties that you may not find elsewhere. In this workshop, we will guide you through the process and set you up for success. Learn when to start different seeds, how to plant, water, thin, maintain and provide correct lighting.

We’ll also demo how you can make your own grow lab using locally sourced materials. This grow lab is 24” x 20” x 26” and can fit easily on a tabletop or on the floor. It breaks down after use for easy storage in the off-season. This set-up is perfect for use at home or in a classroom.

Where: Online, on Zoom

Cost: $30
