Organic catch up and cake (4-5pm)
After this event we’re inviting any organic farmers, or anyone interested in converting to organic, to an informal catch up chat -- with cake. We want to hear what is happening on your holding, and to find out if there is anything we can do to help you, as well as share a bit more on what we’re doing at Soil Association Scotland, and through the Scottish Organic Forum.

Even if you can’t make the full event, please let us know you plan to attend for the catch up session so we can make sure there is enough cake to go around.

Succeed with seed with selection perfection

Ben Raskin: One of the keys to saving your own seed is the 'selection', or identifying the best of your plants to keep the seed from. If you are aiming to 'maintain' a variety, in other words to keep it as close as possible to the original genetics of that variety, then there will be specific traits you will need to keep (colour, height, pest or disease resistance for instance). Most of just want to ensure the selection performs well in our garden or farm.
