Growing up in a home that was constantly filled with the smells of chilies and roasted pork naturally led to a leading role in family gatherings and community cookouts\, developing skills and confidence that earned him a spot on the opening team for Brian Malarkey’s Searsucker. After spending over a decade as Malarkey’s right-hand man\, Chef Carlos went on to open not one but two of his own restaurants in 2013: San Diego’s Salt and Cleaver and Costa Mesa’s Taco Asylum.

Our instructor is Don Tipping\, the founder and operator of Seven Seeds Farms and Siskiyou Seeds. His family farm in southwest Oregon has been biodynamic and organic since 1997 and is lauded as one of the best examples of permaculture farming in the Northwest. His seed company\, Siskiyou Seeds\, has been a formal seed operation since 2009\, born out of the flower and vegetable fields on the farm. They currently grow over 700 varieties of vegetables\, flowers\, herbs and grains. Originally from Orange County\, Don Tipping is a passionate educator and farmer who we are very eager to partner with. \nAlongside Don Tipping\, team members from The Ecology Center will adapt the information to our bioregion. With a newly blossoming seed program at our farm\, there is no better time to share the knowledge within our community towards true seed sovereignty. \nThe two-day workshop will include lectures and activities with a cornucopia of knowledge on seed biology\, the history and action of seed keeping and seed saving\, human history\, harvesting techniques\, and so much more. \nWe will cover: \n\nBasic reproductive biology in flowering plants\nPlant parts and actions\nCross pollination\nGenetics and selection\nPlant improvement and basic plant breeding\nSeed harvesting\, cleaning tools and techniques \nWet and dry seed saving\nHands-on harvesting at our farm (vegetables and flowers)\n\nLastly\, we will dream into and envision what a Southern California Community Seed Hub might look like. \nThis two-day workshop is open to both beginners and experienced gardeners and farmers. It will be a deep dive into seeds and a huge step on our community journey towards seed and food sovereignty.  \nWe will provide lunch but we recommend you bring other snacks\, a reusable water bottle\, sun protection\, close-toed shoes\, and a notebook. \n  \nThe event is two consecutive days\, all day- 8:30am-5:30pm. We will provide a small lunch on Saturday and Sunday\, June 11th and 12th. \nRSVP HERE URL:https://www.theecologycenter.org/event/seed-school/ LOCATION:The Ecology Center\, 32701 Alipaz Street\, SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO\, CA\, 92675\, United States CATEGORIES:all ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.theecologycenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Milpa_slide3.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="The%20Ecology%20Center":MAILTO:info@theecologycenter.org END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Denver:20220611T090000 DTEND;TZID=America/Denver:20220611T100000 DTSTAMP:20220527T233401 CREATED:20220412T232528Z LAST-MODIFIED:20220520T003826Z UID:23976-1654938000-1654941600@www.theecologycenter.org SUMMARY:Yoga on the Farm DESCRIPTION:Pacific Ashtanga Yoga Shala will continue its beloved farm yoga series at The Ecology Center through the month of June! \nJoin Diana Christinson and teachers from Pacific Ashtanga Yoga Shala for breath and movement surrounded by the colorful abundance of spring on the farm.

All are welcome to share\, swap\, pass\, and trade seeds and stories. We invite you to bring your seed library- whether it is a humble collection or a well-seasoned crate of many varieties. \n  \nFor the last few months\, we have been hosting Seed Connection – a free Saturday morning workshop for our community. Our hope is to help train up the skills and tools to create more self-sufficiency in our gardens\, more passion and knowledge about sacred seeds\, and eventually create a cohort of seed savers and growers in South OC. We’d especially like to invite anyone who has participated in a Seed Connection workshop this season. Let’s come together as a larger community to celebrate seasonal abundance and take time to pause and reflect on all we have learned together so far. \n  \nWhether you are an experienced seed saver or a new gardener\, seed swaps offer the opportunity to nurture a network of change-makers. We invite all to the table to enjoy the wonders of this age-old event! \n  \nWith summer around the corner\, we invite you to bring your favorite mid and late summer varieties. But all seeds are acceptable and welcomed! Organic preferred. This is our first seed swap of what we hope will become a quarterly offering. \n  \n\nSeed Connection is made possible by Wild Wisdom Foundation and Annie Dunne.

Seed Connection is our free weekly offering open to anyone of any age in our community. This weekly workshop is for deepening your relationship with seeds\, strengthening your knowledge about seasonal gardening\, and connecting with the community over shared values to care for the planet. We will explore the seldom told story of seeds and the different varieties we grow at the farm. Together\, we will learn the art of saving seeds through the seasons\, check out indigenous\, drought-resistant\, and heirloom seeds\, and become better stewards of our own seed banks at home. We will work together to learn how to grow food in the right season\, learn how to plan our own crops\, and share resources and stories from our own backyards. \n  \nAnyone is free to join one time or every week. We hope you make it a regular part of your weekend! We look forward to nurturing our seed friends and community and begin creating an alliance of seed savers in our region. \n  \nSeed Connection will also host a quarterly seed swap and exchange where we will all come together to share\, swap\, pass\, and enjoy! This is open to anyone who has joined a Seed Connection Saturday or anyone in the community looking for interesting varieties to grow!  This will also be a time to pause and reflect on all we have learned in Seed Connection and celebrate the seasonal abundance. \n  \nSeed Connection is made possible by Wild Wisdom Foundation and Annie Dunne. \n  URL:https://www.theecologycenter.org/event/seed-connection-16/ LOCATION:The Ecology Center\, 32701 Alipaz Street\, SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO\, CA\, 92675\, United States CATEGORIES:all ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.theecologycenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/seededsourdough-square-1.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="The%20Ecology%20Center":MAILTO:info@theecologycenter.org END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
